Abstract

At the start of 2019/20, religion and belief featured in two prominent sector reports that highlighted problems in social integration on our campuses.  This paper offers a personal reflection on faith on the campus, from the perspective of ‘just an average Muslim’, Zia Chaudhry MBE.  It presents an overview of the Muslim student experience on campus and endorses the notion of ‘religious’ literacy as a means of nurturing respect and spiritual wellbeing.
