The Muslim Life Program

The Muslim Life Program in the Office of Religious Life will be directed by Khalil Abdullah, the Assistant Dean, Muslim Life.

The Muslim life Program is dedicated to building a vibrant and pluralistic community on Princeton University's campus that is welcoming to all and fosters deeper exploration of faith, sacred knowledge, and social activism through fellowship and a wide variety of programs. 

The Muslim Chaplain is available throughout the academic year as a resource for students seeking faith-based counseling and learning. He also welcomes questions and discussions about Islam and Muslim practice.

The Muslim Life Program seeks to successfully integrate the faith and practice of Muslim students into their Princeton University experience by:

  1. Providing students with the space and opportunity to explore their faith – spiritually and intellectually– in a safe and nurturing environment.
  2. Fostering a close-knit, spiritual, and pluralistic community that honors cultural, racial, and philosophical diversity in its midst.
  3. Developing an institution for Muslim life that meets short and long-term needs and hopes of Muslim students; acts as an effective partner for interfaith relations; and serves as an educational resource on Islam and Muslim cultures/practices.
  4. Encouraging students to live out their faith through service and good global citizenship.
