First Muslim Pres. of College Chaplains Assoc.; Election May Ingrain College Diversity for Yrs.

A national organization of university religious leaders elected its first Muslim president last week in a move that could influence college diversity for years, the Huffington Post website reports today (February 14, 2017).

The National Association of College and University Chaplains recently elected Imam Adeel Zeb to be its next president.

Zeb serves as the Muslim chaplain at the Claremont University Consortium in Southern California and will assume the one-year, volunteer position at NACU this summer.

For Zeb, his election serves not only as a personal milestone, but also as one he hopes will inspire other non-Christian religious leaders to enter the field of college chaplaincy.
