New Website Launch
- Sep 14, 2011

The Center for Muslim and Jewish Engagement has been reworking the design of our new site over the past months. We have launched the new version which includes a more intuitive layout, Youtube integration, and the immediate option to email questions with the Ask a Scholar Feature. We have experienced a few technical difficulties during the early part of the launch but from here on out it should be smooth sailing.
