The International Institute of Islamic Thought (IIIT) hosts a variety of workshops and seminars every year on topics that are relevant to academia as well as the larger Muslim community. The Pre-Tenure Faculty Workshop is an annual event for emerging and senior scholars. In 2016, IIIT hosted the Islamic Futures Workshop by Ziauddin Sardar and his team. Some of the seminars held at IIIT include the Mazrui Seminar, Jamal Barzinji Seminar, and Summer School Program Alumni Seminar along with colloquia on contemporary issues such as Fiqh Al-Muwatanah.
The IIIT Pre-Tenure Faculty Workshop brings together early career scholars of Islam and tenured faculty mentors for a candid, substantive, and meaningful conversation on various professional and pedagogical aspects as well as challenges of being a pre-tenure scholar of Islam in North American colleges and universities.
The International Institute of Islamic Thought (IIIT) presents an opportunity to former Summer Student Program to return to IIIT for its Alumni Seminar. Successful candidates spend one week in residence at IIIT during which they listen to the current SSP cohort's research ideas, present their own research, and attend the Summer Institute for Scholars. In this way, they are able to continue their relationship with IIIT as well as interact and network with summer students and scholars.
