About Us

The Islamic Studies Program (ISP) serves students, faculty, and the extramural community by promoting the understanding of global Islamic culture and Muslim societies worldwide, through pioneering research, innovative instruction, and a commitment to building partnerships on campus and beyond.

ISP is funded by contributions from the U-M Provost's Office; the International Institute; and the College of Literature, Sciences and the Arts (LSA). It mobilizes U-M's outstanding faculty to contribute to instruction, research, and public affairs programming. ISP is designed to establish the University of Michigan as a national leader in the field of Islamic Studies, benefiting undergraduate and graduate students and faculty.
