of Islam which are: Acceptance, Compassion, Equality, Justice and Peace.

1. Establish an Islamic Center which will have educational, religious and social components.
Intentionally locate the Institute in a Tri-Faith Campus/Village with the Judaic and Christian Institutions.
2. Build a unified, cohesive and informed American Muslim community in Omaha, Nebraska.
3. Invest in our youth to become agents of change and the leaders of tomorrow.
4. Change the paradigm of interfaith dialogue where respect comes first.
AIISC itself is non-denominational and welcomes all Muslims without holding one school of thought higher than the other. Working
with other educational institutions in Omaha and beyond, AIISC will research, develop and implement advanced programs exploring
the history of Islamic civilization and current Muslim contributions to the modern world.
The AIISC will offer Friday prayers and other religious activities; a monthly lecture series; a yearly conference; a school and extracurricular programs for Muslim youth; leadership development programs; coordination with local universities to develop curricula; endowment of chair positions at local universities; and research regarding Muslim belief systems, health practices and interfaith outcomes.
The AIISC will have a unique and powerful impact on the Muslim community. Men and women will have equal opportunities to
participate in all activities of the organization and may hold office at any level of leadership. The Institute will promote intercultural
exchange between various members of the community and promote a sense of unity overriding cultural, linguistic and geographic
differences. Education and research are key organizational components of the vision, but perhaps the most distinctive feature of
this Institute is its collaboration with the Tri-Faith Initiative.
