Chaplain Malik Shakoor begins ministry at Wesleyan

From The Wesleyan Argus:

“Shakoor began his role as chaplain on Monday, Oct. 8. Since then, he has met with Director of the Office of Spiritual Life Rabbi David Leipziger Teva and the leader of the Muslim Student Association Eunes Harun ’20 about the needs of the student body. Shakoor prioritizes a less direct, more guiding approach to spiritual leadership.

‘My job is not to come in and micromanage and tell them what they have to do or what the scripture says,’ Shakoor said. ‘I’m here to support them and advise them. If they choose to take my advice, great, but if not, they’re here to develop their own leadership skills.'”
