Federal award to 'promote understanding of Islam'

'Intended as a springboard for dialogue between varying religions and cultures'

(Rockland County Times) Rockland Community College (RCC) has been named the recipient of the “Muslim Journeys Bookshelf Award,” receiving books, films and access to online resources about Islamic beliefs and culture. The news was momentous enough to earn a front-page, full-page announcement in the college’s winter newsletter SCENE.

RCC received 25 books, three films and a subscription to Oxford Islamic Studies Online. The Muslim award was created and funded by the federal National Endowment for the Humanities and the American Library Association.
