College Overview

From two-year colleges to four-year universities, ING has presented to thousands of students and faculty in Bay Area institutions of higher education. ING guest speakers are ideal for supplementing and enhancing courses in History, Religious Studies, Humanities, Education and Global Studies. Preparing students with a global education to succeed in the 21st century requires an awareness and understanding of religious diversity.

ING provides these services at no charge to schools, colleges and universities. See a listing of ING’s past presentations in colleges and universities.

Presentations About American Muslims and Their Faith

In light of ongoing global conflicts and the threat of terrorism that have both served to increase stereotypes and misperceptions about Muslims, it is important for students to meet American Muslims face to face to counter stereotypes and bias. ING offers presentations which supplement the study of Islamic civilization and Muslim culture in the context of comparative Religions, World History, and Women’s Studies. There is no charge for these presentations.  To learn more about ING’s presentations or to schedule a presentation click here.
