Request for Larger Prayer Space Denied, Advocacy Continues

BARUCH COLLEGE–Baruch College is currently unable to fulfill Muslim students’ request for a larger or separate prayer space. Some students are thus organizing a “grassroots” campaign to convert a large club room into a meditation space.

“At this time, the College cannot reasonably and equitably accommodate this request because we are space-challenged,” Vice President for Student Affairs and Dean of Students Art King said in an email on Feb. 1.
