MEISSA, as the student-run branch of the Middle Eastern and Islamic Studies minor, is to be an academic and non-political organization. Our one core belief is that the future public and private leaders of the world should not graduate from Boston College without the advantage of understanding the diverse politics, economies, religions, societies, cultures, and languages of the Middle East and the greater Islamic world. These regions are absolutely central to international relations and will continue to be for decades to come. Aside from the general utility of studying these areas, this part of the world is pretty interesting in and of itself.
