The Center for Muslim-Christian Understanding at Washington, DC, was founded in 1993. The Center is aimed to advance education in the fields of Islamic civilization, and build an stronger bridge of understanding between the Muslim world and the West as well as between Islam and Christianity. The Center is part of the Edmund A. Walsh School of Foreign Service at Georgetown University.
In 2005, The Center received a $20 million dollar gift from HRH Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal. This gift increased the Center ability to advance in facilitating cross-cultural and inter-religious dialogue. John L. Esposito is its current director, and John O. Voll an associate director.
The Center was renamed the Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal Center for Muslim-Christian Understanding (ACMCU). This endowed fund was the second largest single gift in Georgetown University history. About ACMCU
