Muslim Voices

Voices + Visions

Voices and Visions: Islam and Muslims from a Global Perspective is a project of Indiana University comprised of various initiatives and activities that are all dedicated to promoting understanding and dialogue between Muslims and non-Muslims. The project aims to:

  • Increase intercultural understanding by providing access to the voices and visions of Islam and Muslims locally and around the world.
  • Inform and promote dialogue as it tackles the complexities of Islam and the often complicated relations between Muslims and non-Muslims.
  • Replace misinformation, mistrust, and oversimplifications with awareness, consideration, dialogue, and a diversity of voices.
  • Promote accessible scholarship, forthright communication, balanced viewpoints, and the value of the many voices and visions of Islam.
