UWS statement on the Muslim Students' Association event
The University of Western Sydney's Muslim Students' Association (MSA) booked a venue on campus for an MSA event. The event was not organised by Hizb ut-Tahrir.
University student groups and associations regularly hold events discussing a range of issues. By all accounts this forum discussed a broad range of social topics in accordance with the Muslim Students' Association's printed event program, including homelessness, aged care, domestic violence, mental health, substance abuse and drug addiction, and divorce.
Events such as these and others like them seek to build social cohesion in our community.

As a proud supporter of gender equality, the University does not support the segregation of men and women at any University event or public forum on a University campus. In this context the University will discuss the matter of gender segregation with the relevant parties.
