Lokahi Foundation brings Campusalam to Muslim students in University of Birmingham

The Lokahi Foundation has announced that its flagship project, Campusalam, which has been running as a resource for Muslim students and encouraging good relations between different faiths and beliefs on campuses since April 2010, will be renamed and relaunched as Campus Lokahi.

Campus Lokahi will explore the idea of ‘lokahi’ (harmony through diversity) on campuses through a programme of research and action. It aims to equip students and staff to flourish in situations of diversity and to work for positive social change with people of different faiths and beliefs.

In the 2012/2013 academic year, the Campus Lokahi team will be working closely with the students’ unions and student societies at six different campuses: Birkbeck College, University of London; University of Birmingham; Heythrop College, University of London; King’s College London; Queen Mary, University of London; and University College London.

The Campusalam website will continue to be active hosting resources and advice for Muslim students and staff.
