UofL's Muhammad Ali Institute and Muhammad Ali Center Collaboration

UofL’s Muhammad Ali Institute Collaboration with the Muhammad Ali Center

On October 16th the Muhammad Ali Scholars met with the Muhammad Ali Center’s Council of Students (MACCS) to kick off a year-long collaboration between the two student groups. The evening started with the MACCS receiving an overview of UofL’s Muhammad Ali Institute for Peace and Justice from  the Assistant Director, Ashleigh Hazley, and the Program Assistant, Sr., LaJa Hurt.  Immediately following, all students (the Muhammad Ali Scholars and the MACCS) participated in a game of “Cross the Line” which was designed to have students debate different social justice issues. This was followed by small group discussions about the importance of youth voices, and ways in which the students can amplify their impact. Some of the ideas generated by the groups included creating a social media campaign or hosting an event which allows young leaders to elevate their voices.
