Established in 2007, the GTU’s Center for Islamic Studies (CIS) educates scholars and students of Islam and other faiths about the richness of the Islamic tradition and the diversity of Muslims. The Center for Islamic Studies generates innovative research and scholarship on Islamic texts and traditions in contemporary contexts and emphasizes study and dialogue within and across religious traditions, where pluralism, interreligious understanding, and public engagement are the basis of scholarship and service.
