Dear IWG members,

We're cancelling the next IWG meeting scheduled for March 20th, in light of the public health guidelines and care for your wellbeing.

Please let me or Silan Fadlallah <> know if you have any questions. Stay safe and take good care of yourself.

The Islamophobia Working Group (IWG) was assembled in January 2016 to address the national crisis of Islamophobia and its impact on our campus community. We—a group of faculty, staff, and students -- have become actively involved in the University’s strategic plan for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion and gained visibility across the university. For over two years, the IWG was run through the Arab and Muslim American Studies Program in American Culture; starting in Winter 2019, the IWG is led by CMENAS housed in the International Institute. Our work is driven by issues brought to the group by any student, staff, or faculty member. The group strategizes as a collective to figure out the best approach to a given issue. Thus, if you encounter a pertinent issue, we want to know about it and we welcome your participation in the group. If you would like to join our email list or come to a meeting, please contact Professor Samer Ali (
