On Sunday, July 31st, American Islamic College held its First Annual Imams and Muslim Chaplains Workshop. The workshop was entitled, “Addressing the Current State of Muslim Leadership, Spiritual Care and Education in the US.” We had a dynamic group of panelists speaking on a variety of important issues, e.g. the role of a chaplain, sexual harassment, racism, violence, women’s leadership, prison chaplaincy, faith advisors in universities, etc. Poignant questions and topics were raised which ignited thoughtful discussions among the participants.
