Rensselaer MSA
Faith - Collaboration - Brotherhood - Sisterhood


The mission of the Muslim Students Association (MSA) at RPI is to realize Islam through words, actions and intentions to Muslims and non-Muslims on the RPI campus and in the society at large for the love of God.

Through its various programs, the MSA aspires to elevate our fellow Muslims' spirituality; to increase the awareness amongst the non-Muslim community of Islam and its principles; to allow for the RPI Muslim student body to become an integral part of the larger Muslim identity in the Capital District; and to support RPI Muslim students in their religious, dietary, educational, social, and other daily needs
