Islam on CampusThis chapter chronicles the rise of al-Gama‘a al-Islamiyya through the students who built it. It traces the process of their intellectual discovery and the development of the group’s religious mission. Featuring a confluence of ideological trends from within the Islamic movement and an organic process of building the organization, these student leaders experienced considerable success, taking hold of Student Unions across the country, thereby institutionalizing their gains and securing access to resources essential to the perpetuation of the group’s beliefs and programs.

Keywords:   al-Gama‘a al-Islamiyya, Student Union, Islamic movement
