The Ranao Council Incorporated is an organisation working to help meet the needs of Muslim Filipinos. It was organised in 1997 by a group of students with the goal of countering or at least softening the impact of the martial law regime upon the community.
The Ranao Council Incorporated has the following objectives:
- To promote the general welfare of the Muslim Filipinos;
- To help in the educational development of the Muslim Filipinos at all levels by encouraging the study of technology, arts and pure sciences, and the pursuit of higher education;
- To help conserve and develop aspects of our culture which are not contrary to Islam and encourage the obliteration of those aspects which are deemed un-Islamic; and
- To cooperate with other groups in undertaking activities or projects which are designed to benefit the Muslim Communities.
Ranao Council Inc. promotes camaraderie between Muslims and non-Muslims inside the MSU Campus. It is also part of the outgoing reconciliation regarding the Bangsamoro Basic Law.
