Prof. Feryal Salem will join Prof. Timur Yuskaev as the co-director of the Islamic Chaplaincy Program, Hartford Seminary President Heidi Hadsell has announced.
The Seminary's Islamic Chaplaincy Program trains Muslim chaplains for work in institutions such as colleges and universities, hospitals, prisons, and the military. The impetus for the program came in the 1990s after the U.S. government approached the Seminary asking for such a program to address the need for Muslim chaplains in the military. Hartford Seminary's Islamic Chaplaincy Program, officially launched in 2003, remains the only accredited such program in the United States, and graduates have been named to positions in many prominent institutions across the country, most notably at Yale University, Williams College, and Princeton University.
