Bayan Claremont will educate leaders who are qualified and well-positioned to effectively present Islam to American Muslims and the broader American society. These indigenous imams, chaplains, educators, activists and scholars will help serve the needs of the Islamic community in the religiously and culturally pluralistic realities of American society.
