American Muslim Civic Leadership Institute

The American Muslim Civic Leadership Institute (AMCLI) builds the capacity of emerging Muslim leaders from across the United States. AMCLI currently offers an online training program, with the hope to resume its regional program in 2022.

AMCLI provides emerging leaders with recognition: meaning, enrichment, credentials; space to think differently, to be revived, to be challenged; tools: resources, capacity, training; inspiration through others and through faith; connection to other civic leaders within and outside of Muslim communities.


Cecil Murray Center for Community Engagement

The Cecil Murray Center for Community Engagement draws on the social, spiritual, and leadership capital of churches and the broader faith community to promote economic development and civic engagement in low-income neighborhoods. Specifically, the Center honors Rev. Cecil L “Chip” Murray’s three-decade-long legacy of working for the betterment of Los Angeles.


Reimagining Church

The USC Center for Religion and Civic Culture’s Reimagining Church Initiative seeks to help church leaders create thriving organizations.

With the current reality of the Covid-19 pandemic, these problems are exaggerated in many ways. To take one example, even for the most ardent church-goer, being kept from physically attending worship services, and instead watching online (potentially several services in one weekend) may lead to a weakening commitment to their own congregation.
