The Sisters and Brothers of Islam's purpose, as stated in their constitution, "the purpose of this organization is to create dialog, share knowledge and understanding about Islam between students." SBI is a newly created student organization on campus to help students of all backgrounds to come together and gain a better understanding of Islam.
As urged by friend, and ideas among several friends, we have decided that the creation of SBI would be a great addition to the UWRF campus since there is a need to fill the gap of misunderstanding between Muslim and non-Muslim students.
