[7.31.13] Imam Khalil Abdur-Rashid’s Resignation as Muslim Programming Associate
Imam Khalil Abdur-Rashid, a great mentor and friend to us at the MSA, has resigned his position as Muslim Programming Associate in the Office of the University Chaplain. The Office of the University Chaplain plans on beginning the search process shortly and hopes to have a new Muslim Programming Associate hired as soon as possible. In the meantime, Imam Syed Sayeed, who has been a Special Advisor to the Office of the University Chaplain, has agreed to be available for any needs which may arise from the Muslim community.
As MSA board members, we would like to thank Imam Khalil for all his contributions to the MSA and to the larger Columbia community. We are sad to see him go but pray he finds continued success in his academic and pastoral career path as he heads to join the Islamic Association of Collin County as a Resident Scholar. We will work closely and proactively with the Office of the University Chaplain to find a suitable replacement who will help improve Muslim life and advocate for the needs of the Muslim Morningside Heights community, inshAllah. We look forward to announcing the new Muslim Programming Associate in the fall. As always, please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or concerns.
