The Muslim Chaplaincy supports Muslim life for the whole Tufts community.

The Muslim Chaplaincy works in partnership with the Muslim Students Association to provide opportunities of communal prayer and the celebration of religious rituals and holidays, religious education, fellowship, and spiritual care for Muslim students, faculty, and staff at Tufts. Retreats, study groups, service opportunities, and interfaith activities support the community in integrating their faith practices into their academic and personal lives on and off campus. In times of personal loss or crisis, the Muslim Chaplain serves as a resource to support the Muslim community in counseling and prayers. In addition, the Muslim Chaplain is committed to educating the campus at large about Islam and connecting the Muslim community to the rest of the campus through dialogue, social activities, and community service with different religious, ethnic, and cultural groups both on campus and off. The Muslim Chaplain welcomes opportunities to educate others about the religious and cultural aspects of Muslim life. Learn more by visiting the Muslim Chaplaincy website.
