Our History

For over 50 years, the Muslim Students Association (MSA) of North America & Canada is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization whose mission and vision is to serve millions of Muslim students throughout their college and university years. MSA National provides Muslim students with practical resources, leadership training and other services to enable them to have a positive impact on their campuses.

Each MSA chapter is an independent student-run organization operating under the rules & regulations of their own respective campuses. Some of MSA National's most popular campaigns include the annual Islam Awareness Week, Ramadan Fast-A-Thon, and Project Downtown; which all help to highlight the societal contributions of millions of Muslim students within their local college & university campus communities.
