Mission Statement

The Muslim Students Association (MSA) is a registered student organization at Valparaiso University. MSA exists for the sake of Allah and Allah only. It is a group designed for all Muslim students on campus; consisting of people of different origins, nationalities, and culture; serving the needs of students by the virtues of brotherhood and sisterhood; a means by which Muslim students maintain and increase their faith in a college environment; a tool by which non-Muslims on campus learn about Islam and its beauty; a voice for the Ummah on this campus and of all Muslims worldwide. Above all, MSA is the stepping stone by which students learn the techniques, develop the motivation, and acquire the passion to commit their lives for the sake of Allah and Allah alone.
