The Islamic Center of Las Cruces is affiliated with The Muslim Students Association (MSA) at New Mexico State University (NMSU). MSA is a student organization whose mission is to serve and represent Muslim students at NMSU. Also in the midst of all the misinformation about the Islamic faith, the MSA seeks to present an accurate and unbiased image of Islam to non-Muslims at NMSU so as to promote more tolerance and understanding among students of different faiths. More specifically, the MSA seeks to forward the following ends:
- To provide different forms of aid to Muslim students on campus including academic assistance, possible financial assistance and information related to living in Las Cruces such as housing, Halal dining, local Masjids etc.
- To disseminate Islamic knowledge among Muslims for the purpose of strengthening their bonds to Islam.
- To present and give better understanding of Islam through campus activities.
- To develop relationships and a better understanding between Muslims and non-Muslims on and off campus.
- To foster cooperation with other Muslim organizations.
