About Us

Project Nur will be dedicated to creating a space that allows all students to learn from and about each other in order to build an inter-ethnic and multi-faith student community promoting human rights and civil rights; this would ultimately result in emphasizing the positive values and expectations of all identities, while promoting co-existence, tolerance and understanding. Furthermore, Project Nur aims to emphasize positive relationships by building bridges between Muslims and people of other faiths in order to diminish generalizations and stereotypes.

Nur as defined in Arabic as enlightenment, will position itself as a Muslim-led forum for students from various backgrounds, cultures, and faith to come together to celebrate their differences, solidify their commonalities, and bring light or knowledge to their respective communities.
