March 9th, 2022 15:16

A US Mus­lim Broth­er­hood group has announced that it is part­ner­ing with Yale Uni­ver­si­ty in a series of cours­es appear­ing on the Cours­era e‑learning plat­form. Accord­ing to the Islam­ic Soci­ety of North America’s Face­book post:

March 4, 2022: ISNA is a proud part­ner with the Yale Forum on Reli­gion and Ecol­o­gy, and we are pleased to announce a new series of online cours­es, “Reli­gions and Ecol­o­gy: Restor­ing the Earth Community.”

Cours­era describes itself as an online learn­ing plat­form that has had 82 mil­lion learn­ers and has part­nered with over 200 uni­ver­si­ties to bring online cours­es and degrees to its users. Yale Uni­ver­si­ty is one of the old­est uni­ver­si­ties in the US and a mem­ber of the pres­ti­gious Ivy League.

The Islam­ic Soci­ety of North Amer­i­ca (ISNA) is a Plain­field, Illi­nois-based umbrel­la orga­ni­za­tion that describes its vision as “an exem­plary and uni­fy­ing Islam­ic orga­ni­za­tion in North Amer­i­ca that con­tributes to the bet­ter­ment of the Mus­lim com­mu­ni­ty and soci­ety at large.” ISNA emerged out of the ear­ly US Mus­lim Broth­er­hood infra­struc­ture, and its cur­rent lead­er­ship con­tin­ues to demon­strate its long­stand­ing ties to the USMB. Recent evi­dence of ISNA influ­ence on US pol­i­tics includes an ISNA leader par­tic­i­pat­ing in a Trump admin­is­tra­tion secu­ri­ty con­fer­ence and Demo­c­ra­t­ic pres­i­den­tial can­di­dates Bernie Sanders’ and Julian Castro‘s speak­ing appear­ances at ISNA’s annu­al conference.
