IAW is open to students and faculty of Washington State University and University of Idaho as well as the Pullman and Moscow communities. Islamic Awareness Week 2017 is from March 27th-March 31st.
The week's events consist of Dawa tables on Glenn Terrell Mall, panel discussions on important Islamic topics, Movie Nights, Keynote speeches and the final event on Friday is an Open House at the Pullman Islamic Center with free Islamic cuisine and a sermon by the Imam.
