The office of Muslim Student Life at Syracuse University is about support for Muslim students, faculty, and staff in all religious and spiritual needs for development and growth.  It is about accommodation, openness, and understanding - not judgement or restriction.  It aims at improving understanding and representation of Muslim cultures and communities around the world through sharing or universal values of faith and no faith.
