The Center for Peace offers free and interactive presentations about Islam and the Muslim community.  Read what some of our guests have said about their experience:

“I am glad you had the Islamic Society visit the class. I must confess that I was ignorant of many of their customs and now I know a little more about them.”
Valencia Community College Student
“Very informative. Allowed me to clear up stereotypes that I had about Muslims and the Islamic Religion.”
Military Counselor from Patrick Air Force Base
“There's a lot of confusion and misconceptions about the Muslims' religion and culture and it is nice to see people take time to try to straighten things out. I thought that they were very good speakers and didn't try to preach or convert anyone. It was very interesting and informative. I really enjoyed it.”
Stetson University Student
“The speakers from our class were awesome I felt that all of our questions were answered, and I obtained a great amount of knowledge about the Islamic religion.”
UCF Student
"As a veteran of foreign combat, I have personally experienced the hatred and malice of extremist terrorists. For a long time, my opinion of Muslims was clouded, and I often looked at Muslim-Americans with distrust and suspicion. But after the field trip and reading this article, I learned just how similar the views of Muslim-Americans are with my own. They too were betrayed by the terrorists in these attacks, if not more so than I was. By teaching and practicing religious tolerance, and sharing an understanding of the differences between terrorists and Muslim-Americans, I believe faith can one day be restored in the local Muslim community."
Valencia Community College Student
