Department of Near Eastern Languages and Cultures (NELC) at Indiana University, Bloomington
Our distinguished and world-renowned faculty teach diverse courses on the languages, literatures, religions, history, and cultures of the Arab world and the Middle East. Many of our undergraduate majors go on to pursue graduate degrees in Middle Eastern studies and related fields or obtain professional degrees in law and business, among other areas of specialization. Graduates of the masters and doctoral programs enter careers in academia, foreign service, public and business administration.

The signature strengths of the department remain in the classical and medieval periods of Islam—in classical Arabic literature and language, Islamic studies, philosophical and religious thought, and intellectual history. The thriving Arabic language program with its focus on modern standard Arabic and courses offered in the department on the history and politics of the modern Middle East add a vital and critical modern dimension to the traditional departmental areas of strength.

Muslim Alliance in North America (MANA)
MANA is a national network of masjids, Muslim organizations and individuals committed to work together to address certain urgent needs within the Muslim community. These needs include the great social and economic problems that are challenging Muslim communities especially in the inner city; the need for the involvement of masjids and Muslims in community service projects which are aimed at improving society as a whole; the need for systematic and effective dawah programs to help bring more non-Muslims into Islam; the need for new Muslim programs that will help them to grow in Islam. MANA is therefore an open organization that is agenda driven.

Pew Research Center’s Forum on Religion & Public Life
The Pew Research Center’s Forum on Religion & Public Life, launched in 2001, seeks to promote a deeper understanding of issues at the intersection of religion and public affairs.The Pew Forum conducts surveys, demographic analyses and other social science research on important aspects of religion and public life in the U.S. and around the world. It also provides a neutral venue for discussions of timely issues through roundtables and briefings.
The Pew Forum is one of seven projects that make up the Pew Research Center, a nonpartisan "fact tank" that provides information on the issues, attitudes and trends shaping America and the world. The Pew Research Center does this by conducting public opinion polling and social science research; by analyzing news coverage; and by holding forums and briefings. It does not take positions on policy issues.
Société Internationale d'Histoire des Sciences et de la Philosophie Arabes et Islamiques (SIHSPAI)
La Société Internationale d'Histoire des Sciences et de la Philosophie Arabes et Islamiques (SIHSPAI) a été fondée en 1989 lors du Colloque international d'Histoire des sciences et de la philosophie arabes tenu à Paris du 22 au 25 novembre de la même année. Les fondateurs de la SISHPAI, en créant cette Société, faisaient un double pari : en regroupant histoire des sciences et histoire de la philosophie arabes, ils espéraient désenclaver ces deux disciplines et les ouvrir aux courants de l'histoire universelle ; en même temps, ils comptaient œuvrer pour le succès d'une histoire des sciences qui ne soit pas étroitement technicienne, et d’une histoire de la philosophie conçue comme une discipline rigoureuse.
