Recent history of SALAM

In 2018, SALAM was created out of need for a support system, guidance, and mentorship from members of the Arab student community. In its pilot year, the program served over 40 first-year students in a two-day event. Participants met with various organizations that make up the Arab community to learn about its history and ways to be involved. Participants also developed a better understanding of the Arab student experience through student panels, group activities, and more.
