HISTORY – ESTABLISHED : 1968
In 1968 a brother called Aslam Ibrahim initiated the GU—Muslim Students Association with aims to unify and activate the Muslims on campus. His aims were simple – to create a voice for Muslim students to be able to fully practise their religion at Glasgow University.
Since GUMSA’s inception, we have striven to fulfil these aims as well as create new ones in which we foster links with the university and other student bodies in order to work together for the community in Glasgow. That is where GUMSA started and inshAllah we hope to uphold these values.
In 2011,GUMSA were pleased to be awarded the FOSIS national award for ‘Best Networking and Collaboration’ and nominated for two Voluntary Clubs and Society awards, in the categories ‘Best Event’ (Charity Week) and most dedicated committee member.
GUMSA has an executive committee who work hard to make sure the society runs smoothly. They are the ones who maintain the fun, diverse and friendly society that GUMSA is, Masha’Allah.
Every year, at our AGM, new members of the GUMSA committee are selected via a voting process. Whether you’re in first year, or preparing to hand in your Phd thesis, there’s no age requirement to become a committee member. If you’re right for the role, we’re more than happy to have you on board! If you don’t make the committee, we have a strong team of volunteers ready to welcome you with open arms. With so much to do every year, there’s always a job availableble for everyone!
