WHAT IS ISLAMIC CHAPLAINCY?
Islamic chaplaincy is the next step of Islamic leadership in North America, dedicated to nurturing healthy spiritual development in individuals. By having access to a wave of committed, well educated, balanced, nurturing, and culturally relevant role models, young Muslims no longer feel at a loss when they face challenges of faith and identity.
The Muslim Chaplaincy at University of Toronto engages students by providing an inclusive space and sense of community for them to foster a meaningful Muslim identity. The Muslim Chaplaincy enriches and supports students through quality educational, spiritual and counselling services rooted in relevant Islamic learning.

Our logo was designed with rich vibrant colours to be welcoming to those who may find themselves in need of our services. As a one-dimensional shape, the white hexagon within a larger hexagon serves as a metaphor for the space that the chaplaincy provides students. Whereas, the overlapping circular shapes within the larger hexagon are meant to represent the coming together of different people.
The shape of the hexagon can also be interpreted as a three-dimensional cube — a reference to the Ka‘bah — that serves as a unifying point for Muslims of various backgrounds.
Symbolizing diversity and creativity, we hope our logo will be a source of comfort and inspiration for all those who see it.
