Engaging the Muslim World and Muslim Americans in the Age of Obama with Ambassador Rashad Hussain

The Muslim Life Program inaugurated an annual Muslim Visionaries Award in which prominent Muslims will be honored for their dedication to faith and service to humanity. We were honored to give this award for the first time to Ambassador Rashad Hussain--Obama's Special Envoy to the Muslim World. Mr. Hussain spent an entire day on campus guest lecturing in three classes, spending time with students and faculty over dinner, and offering a public lecture in the evening. Mr. Hussain outlined ways in which this administration's approach to the Muslim World is different from his predecessor's including a shift away from inflammatory language and rhetoric. Mr. Hussain also encouraged students to think seriously about their field of study and to make a determination to positively contribute to the peaceful progress.
