  2. Engage student leaders in civic and entrepreneurial initiatives by actively participating in projects in our local communities and abroad.
  3. Provide a space for every one of different cultural backgrounds and experiences to celebrate the diversity in our nation.
  4. Build the next generation of leaders to remedy the challenges facing the American Muslim community through action-based initiatives focused on promoting coexistence of all communities.
