What is Cornell Muslim Alumni?
Cornell Muslim Alumni (CMA) is a social and professional network for Muslim alumni of Cornell University to connect with each other virtually and through events such as socials, iftaars and professional networking sessions.
CMA is the face of Muslim alumni to Muslim students at Cornell who want to reach out of the alumni community. In this way, CMA also allows alumni to be aware of and support worthy programmes that enhance Muslim life for students on campus.
The programmes that we support through alumni donations include:
The Muslim Life Fund, and Ramadan & Eid Funds are managed by The Diwan Foundation, the fundraising vehicle dedicated to supporting Muslim Life programming at Cornell.
How it is run?
This network is only as strong as the number of alumni we are connected to, so we consistently reach out to Muslim alumni who are not part of this network yet. Help us reach out to your alumni members you know by contacting our Outreach team.
Since a lot of work is still required to manage a website and social media presence, the Board of Directors of The Diwan Foundation currently help to administer CMA’s online presence. You can find out more about Diwan here.
