In my research, subjects, when asked about where they think students' prejudices and stereotyping toward Muslims stems from (if they had witnessed any), some expressed a sense of ignorance about Muslim culture and Islam in general. Some said that they believed that the stereotypes were a result of the way that Muslims were portrayed in the media post-9/11. One subject expressed that many of her peers were surprised that she was Muslim, and considered this a sort of ignorance--in that they had some sort of preconceived notion of what a Muslim should look like. Another subject expressed that people assume sort of innocence about her, because she was Muslim, but she did not want anyone to assume anything about her. However, this ignorance did not seem to be more prevalent in Greek Institutions than outside of them. In general, students were very mixed about whether or not they even saw prejudice in Greek Institutions, and if they did, they did not indicate that these institutions and people within them were more likely to be ignorant of Muslim culture than any other person in American society in general. This means that the ignorance about Muslims seen in Greek institutions is probably more about the broader sociohistoric narrative at work in America. The United States has had a history of Christianity being its' most common religious foundation, and some of the conservative ideology that comes along with that has perhaps helped drive the almost willful ignorance about Muslim culture and one might even go so far to say that this ignorance extends to political issues centered in the Middle East (Arab-Israeli conflict and the Benghazi attacks). If you were to take a poll, most Americans could not say that they really knew the difference between Al Qaeda and the Taliban. People generally consume the melodrama that they see in the media and what stigmas exist in popular culture without doing further research and looking at all sides of an issue. To bring the conversation full circle back to an ignorance about Muslims in Greek institutions, my faculty subject mentioned something incredibly ironic about this ignorance. He made the point that people in Greek institutions are ignorant about Muslims' impact on their own history. At one time, Arabic was the Lingua Franca of Europe and without Muslim translators, Greek philosophy would have never made it into Latin. If Greek institutions are based on Greek philosophy, many students are unaware of Muslims' impact on their organizations' roots.
