Petition for a Muslim Chaplaincy at Cornell University

Unlike other universities sited in major cities, the Ithaca/Cornell Muslim community has neither a mosque nor a full-time, regular Imam (or anyone to act as a full-time religious leader/advisor). This is partly due to the relatively small local Muslim community in Ithaca, and in part due to a largely student Cornell Muslim community which has not had the experience and finances to establish a mosque. Thus, the student organization, Muslim Educational and Cultural Association (MECA) has fulfilled a dual role over the past several decades by attending to students


The Muslim Educational and Cultural Association (MECA) at Cornell University works to foster an educational and cultural environment conducive to cooperation among members of the Cornell and Ithaca communities
