Welcome to the Arab Student Association!

The Arab Student Association would like to welcome anyone who is interested in Middle Eastern culture, politics, religion, language, and way of life to consider joining our organization. We have been extremely active on campus hosting a number of events including the Al-Sham Ensemble, the Arabesque Music Ensemble, numerous Arabian Nights events, speakers, and films.

The mission of the Arab Student Association is to increase awareness of Arab culture, history, traditions, and political issues, to expose the University of Iowa community to events and activities that would promote diversity and cultural exchange, strengthening the bonds between the members of the University of Iowa Arab community, and the group will promote the exchange of cultural ideas, political dialogue, and collaboration with other student organizations on campus.
