The Muslim Chaplaincy at UIC aims to provide the Muslim community at the University of Illinois at Chicago with spiritual, religious, educational, social, and communal support, to enable students to foster a meaningful Muslim identity, to advocate for Muslim students at UIC, and to build dialogues with communities of all faiths and backgrounds. It will do so through hiring a chaplain, who will provide pastoral care, mentoring, and counseling rooted in relevant Islamic learning and social justice for students, faculty, and staff, and foster meaningful connections and relationships with UIC student organizations and centers and with Chicagoland communities.

Learning Tools on Anti-Muslim Racism

  • Islamophobia Syllabus: This reading list provides resources for teaching and learning about anti-Muslim racism in the United States. Although “Islamophobia” is the term most recognizable in public discourse, it does not accurately convey the making of racial and religious “others” that fuels the forms of discrimination Muslims face in the United States. The term Islamophobia frames these forms of discrimination and their roots solely as a problem of religious discrimination. Calling this a “phobia” suggests that this discrimination is solely a problem of individual bias, which obscures the structural and systemic production of anti-Muslim racism.
  • Network Against Islamophobia: a project of Jewish Voice for Peace, was created to serve as a resource to, and work with, JVP chapters and other groups interested in organizing against Islamophobia and anti-Arab racism and to be a partner to the broader, Muslim-led movement against Islamophobia.
  • Communities against Islamophobia: Resources and work by the American Friends Service Committee
