58. Khalid Latif (Chaplain, NYU)

Khalid Latif is Executive Director and Chaplain (Imam) for the Islamic Center at New York University (NYU).

In 2005, Imam Latif was appointed the first Muslim chaplain at NYU.  At NYU, Khalid initiated his vision for a pluralistic American Muslim community, rooted on campus and reaching out to the city.  In 2006, Imam Latif was appointed the first Muslim chaplain at Princeton University.  In 2007, Imam Latif’s position was fully institutionalized at New York University, and so he committed himself to that institution and the building of a Muslim life institution.  Today’s Islamic Center is a leader among American Muslim organizations, uniquely shaped to contribute to the future of Muslim practice in the West.
