Ummatics Forums

The Ummatics Institute seeks to host a variety of forums with the aim of facilitating critical discourses on ummatic thought and practice.

These forums support the Institute’s broad goals by providing a unique dialogical space for scholars, experts, thought leaders, and community organizers to collectively address topics of importance to the Muslim Umma and its future. The first of these forums is the Ummatics Colloquium.
