MBA - Culture & Community - Clubs & Organizations - MEISA

Middle Eastern Islamic Student Association

Middle Eastern Islamic Student Association (MEISA) will help promote awareness and understanding about Middle Eastern and Islamic culture, particularly related to doing business with people from or in those communities, and work to increase the community at Darden through recruitment efforts in cooperation with admissions. MEISA will do this by holding social and cultural events for both members and non-members and by locating additional opportunities for Darden students to learn about this increasingly important region, culture, and religion.

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.
