Middle Eastern & Islamic Student Association

  • meisa_logo

    As Darden’s newest student organization, the Middle Eastern and Islamic Student Association (MEISA) will help promote awareness and understanding about Middle Eastern culture and the religion of Islam, particularly related to doing business with people from or in those communities. MEISA recognizes that Muslims come from all backgrounds and not all Middle Eastern students are Muslim, however the club aims to hold social and cultural events for Darden students to learn about this increasingly important region, culture, and religion as well provide resources and support for minority students. We plan to celebrate major holidays, such as Eid Al-Adha, and provide a support structure for Muslim and Middle Eastern students or students interested in learning more about Islam and Middle Eastern culture.

    Members of MEISA, along with leaders from other faith-based clubs recently hosted a webinar where they shared their experiences at Darden and what their clubs bring to the Darden community.

    Although this organization has members who are University of Virginia students and may have University employees associated or engaged in its activities and affairs, the organization is not a part of or an agency of the University. It is a separate and independent organization which is responsible for and manages its own activities and affairs. The University does not direct, supervise or control the organization and is not responsible for the organization’s contracts, acts or omissions.
