The mission of the Noor-Ul-Iman Alumni Association is to enrich the alumni experience, foster beneficial relationships between alumni and the NUI community, and to assist NUI School.
Introducing the New NUIAA Board
One of our goals for this coming year is to better communicate and engage with the alumni body on a more consistent basis, and to be more transparent about association goals and initiatives. To that end we want to introduce the board members who will be serving the community. Feel free to reach out to any of us if you have feedback, ideas, or would like to get engaged.

Afnaan Moharram
Social | Class of 2010
I have been involved in the alumni association since its inception as a member of the social and professional development committees. During the second year of my term on the board, I am excited to be working with the Social committee insha’Allah. While COVID-19 affected our ability to host in person social events, we are reflecting on how we can create exciting opportunities for our community to gather and socialize either virtually or while abiding by social distancing guidelines. Our goals for this year include bringing more frequent, smaller-scale events to the community- such as virtual trivia and game nights, socially distant outdoor activities like hiking, and small halaqas or other peer circles for spiritual connection and growth.

I look forward to embracing my new role as VP and advancing the organization in expanding a social media presence, connecting with current students, and increasing alumni engagement.

Communications | Class of 2010
I graduated from Rutgers University with a double major in Journalism/ Media Studies and Religion. I went back to NUI as a staff member working as a Sports Coordinator for the school’s teams.
