In collaboration with the New Brunswick Islamic Center, we will be offering a one-week Teacher Institute this summer on the topic of Islam and the Muslim World, from Monday, July 16 to Friday, July 20, 2012. This highly topical summer institute will explore Muslim cultures, languages, literatures, media, and Muslim communities in America from a scholarly perspective, building upon Rutgers’ strengths in these areas. The program will also include a three-hour workshop on bullying and harrassment. Participants will meet from 9am until 4:30pm.

The entire program is available to participants for a $300 registration fee, which includes a Middle Eastern-themed lunch at Sahara Restaurant at 165 Easton Avenue in New Brunswick, NJ. The Rutgers Division of Continuing Studies will also issue a certificate for 3.0 CEUs to interested participants for an additional fee of $30.
