The Muslim Students Union at Williams College was founded with the purpose of bringing together students of Islamic heritage in friendship and brother/sisterhood... One of the main goals of the MSU is educating others about Islam and Muslims in an age where such issues are important. The Muslim Student Union promotes peace and understanding among its members, and of course in the greater community of Williams College.
