Through the Lens: Being Muslim in Higher Education

What does it mean to be Muslim in higher education? Drawing from personal experience, storytelling, and research, this workshop explores how religious identity impacts the experience of students, staff and faculty, the interventions that help, and how we might creatively imagine a campus that meets the needs of all.

The UBC Equity & Inclusion Office is excited to present another Through the Lens series, a series of interactive workshops exploring how different identities intersect, navigate and experience UBC while offering practical ideas on creating a more inclusive campus.

Led by experienced community leaders, Through the Lens aims to provoke meaningful conversations on issues of identity, diversity, equity and inclusion. Each workshop provides an opportunity to learn, connect and join a network of allies across campus through story-telling, statistics and other resources.
