An awareness and understanding of Islam at the University of Minnesota is necessary. For over ten years, the Al-Madinah Cultural Center and the Muslim Students Association have collaborated to host an Islam Awareness Week. IAW is organized by a committee dedicated to creating events that are geared toward educating the general student body about what Islam is and isn’t. This year, Islam Awareness Week will be from Monday, March 25 to Friday, March 30. With ten events throughout the week, this initiative is intended to bring the student body together and help correct common misconceptions that are perpetuated about Islam.
Islam Awareness Week is what this University needs during these times. With the goal of spreading peace and understanding instead of hate and ignorance, Islam Awareness Week has the opportunity to educate our student body and allow our campus to come together, unified as a whole.
We hope to see you at one of our events. Please invite your friends if you think they could benefit from any of these events. For more information visit z.umn.edu/IAW2018
