"The IAAB Campus Action Network is a tremendous achievement for the Iranian-American community," says Narges Bajoghli, IAAB co-Founder.
"As the most expansive network of Iranian-American student organizations nationwide, I-CAN further ensures the advancement of our community through the creation of a strong, cohesive, and engaged student population that is committed to working together from all corners of the United States."
As part of I-CAN, Iranian-American student groups will share resources and ideas, collaborate on various events and actions, receive leadership training through IAAB, and have a platform on IAAB's website to exchange ideas and plan together.
IAAB alumni from the Student Summit and Camp Ayandeh initiated and developed the idea of a national student network under the umbrella of IAAB that fosters student groups and leaders. I-CAN is a product of IAAB's spirit of an inclusive, diverse, and collaborative network of young Iranian-Americans.
