The Institute of Islamic Studies at McGill University

Excerpt: Throughout its history, the Institute has provided a special outreach service that has brought students to the Institute from a number of African, Asian, and Middle Eastern countries. An important feature of such efforts has been the exchange of visiting professors, which has developed firm links with many important Muslim universities. These have been supported by the Canadian International Development Agency, the Ford Foundation, the Rockefeller Foundation, the Aga Khan Foundation, and the Alavi Foundation, among others.

McGill University’s Institute of Islamic Studies was founded, along with the Islamic Studies Library (ISL), in 1952, and since 1983 both have been housed on the main campus in Morrice Hall.
