Description

Assalamu Alaykum,

The UCLA Muslim Alumni Association and Institute of Knowledge would like to cordially invite you to a luncheon in effort to raise funds for UCLA’s chaplaincy program. This is the second year of the chaplaincy programs. This year's chaplains are Shaykh Jamaal Diwaan and Shaykha Muslema Purmul.

Currently, the IOK chaplaincy program serves four large campuses: UC Irvine, UCLA, UC Riverside and USC. Since the program's inception, the chaplains have already had 924 individual meetings, clocking over 460 hours with students. It is becoming increasingly important for Muslim students to have access to scholars and to be able to have a space where they can seek counsel and guidance on personal matters.

Chaplaincy currently provides:
Spiritual Care and Guidance: This occurs primarily through regular office hours that are offered by the chaplains on each of the campuses. Office hours are confidential and students are welcome to come and speak about anything that they would like to discuss.
Religious Education: This occurs primarily through regular study circles on the campuses as well as guest lectures and other programs.
Networking: One of the benefits of chaplains that are well-known in the broader Muslim community is that they are able to connect students to networks and resources beyond their individual campuses.
Mentorship: All of our chaplains are from the region that we serve and have graduated from local universities in addition to their traditional Islamic Studies overseas. This allows them to relate to students and provide mentorship on different issues that they face in their lives.
Advising: The chaplains are available, as desired, to advise the various Muslim-led student organizations and projects on the campuses.

Please RSVP by September 30th, 2017.
