"Now my life is really starting - fighting racism, fighting injustice, fighting illiteracy, fighting poverty - using the face the world knows so well and going out and fighting for the truth." - Muhammad Ali
In Fall 2014, the Muhammad Ali Institute for Peace and Justice issued a university-wide call for faculty collaboration to identify new and innovative ways to connect our research to our local community. We call this effort “Translating Social Justice Research Into Action.”
One project involves “Faculty Spotlights” about social justice research and key insights that may be of particular interest to local community and government organizations.
A second project involves an multidisciplinary Faculty Research Group engaged in a collaborative scholarly inquiry about the content and operationalization of “cultural competency” across disciplines, professions and operations in a university setting. The results of this research will be available in 2016.
