John Garvey, President of CUA, discusses Muslims at Catholic colleges

Fascinating interview with Catholic University of America's president on recent influx of Muslim students on Catholic campuses (NPR Dec 23, 2010)

Here's a snippet:

"Mr. GARVEY: We don't set aside prayer rooms, although we make our space available so that students who have daily prayer needs, Muslims who are observant pray five times a day, they can pray. We make classrooms available, or our chapels are places where they can pray. We don't offer Halal meat, although there are always meals that conform to Halal regulations, that allow students to do what they want."
