IIIT Recognized by 1789 Society
On April 5, 2017, Dr. Hisham Altalib and Dr. Ahmed Alwani -president and vice president respectively- attended the 1789 Society at Georgetown University on behalf of the International Institute of Islamic Thought (IIIT). The 1789 Society is the University’s most prestigious fellowship which recognizes those benefactors –individuals or organizations- who contributed $1 million or more to the University.
Through IIIT’s generous donation, Georgetown University’s Bridge Initiative was able to connect the academic study of Islamophobia with the general public. The Bridge Initiative and its Pluralism, Diversity, and Islamophobia project create extensive and original research on Islamophobia in order to bridge the cultural divide for peaceful co-existence.
