Visit Department Website

The goal of the Mohsin and Fauzia Jaffer Center for Muslim World Studies is to be an internationally-recognized and independent source of knowledge and information concerning the global Muslim experience. The Jaffer Center for Muslim World Studies will deepen our understanding of modern-day Islam and dismantle stereotypes and misconceptions, while also studying the challenges facing the Muslim world, promoting healthy dialogue among the world’s faiths and Islam’s sects, and producing objective research and analysis to inform national policy. The Jaffer Center will highlight the contributions of Islam and Muslims to the global community, while also being a place on campus for Muslim student life and a hub for intellectual and cultural activities for Muslim and non-Muslim students alike.

Statement of Free Expression

FIU endorses the Florida Board of Governors' Statement of Free Expression to support and encourage full and open discourse and the robust exchange of ideas and perspectives on our campuses. In addition to supporting this legal right, we view this as an integral part of our ability to deliver a high-quality academic experience for our students, engage in meaningful and productive research, and provide valuable public service. This includes fostering civil and open dialogue in support of critical thinking in and out of the classroom, including events hosted by the university.
