Beginning in the fall semester of 2014, the University of Pittsburgh will not offer any courses dedicated solely to the study of Islamic thought or history. It is unacceptable that Islam, one of the worlds oldest and fastest growing monotheistic religions comprising 23% of the global population, is nonexistent in a world-class academic institution fostering research and scholarship. We request that the University of Pittsburgh offer Islam through a curriculum that represents global citizenship, diversity, and equity.
