The Ivy League is a consortium of universities that share unique social, intellectual and professional opportunities and challenges. In the midst of contemporary American academic life, Muslims at these institutions grapple with these opportunities and challenges, as well as issues of identity and purpose. This fourth Ivy Muslims Conference invites Muslims to explore, interrogate and discuss these issues, especially as they relate to their intellectual and spiritual lives. See below for more information.
