Objectives
 
Our educational programs meet the following objectives:
  • Correct misinformation about Islam presented by public institutions, such as social studies textbooks.
  • Teach about Islamic beliefs and practices.
  • Provide tailored information about Muslims as it relates to the needs of the public institutions.
  • Foster a sustainable relationship between public institutions and the local Muslim community.
Guiding Principles

ISB Albany's programs are based on the following principles:
  • We are educators and a bridge between Islam and Americans of other faiths.
  • We emphasize local activism and the importance of building honest, intimate, and long-term relationships as an effective process for clarifying the Muslim World.
  • We stress face-to-face interaction, giving a human face to theoretical or foreign practices, which is the most powerful tool in overcoming stereotypes and prejudices.
  • Our educational programs meet the needs of public institutions as well as meeting the needs of Muslims.
  • We work towards being a trusted source of information on Islam.
  • We focus on proactive activity, which means we initiate instead of react.
  • We interact with people based on belief in their innate nature as decent and honorable human beings.
