On October 15th Aziz Foundation welcomed Ebrahim College and Cambridge Muslim College to their Muslim Leadership Development Programme. Institutional Development Grants have been awarded to the colleges and the Foundation will sponsor two lectureships at Cambridge Muslim College, one lectureship at Ebrahim college and a chaplain who will work with the students and staff of both institutions.
The vision of the Muslim Leadership Development Programme is to facilitate the growth of exceptional individuals and leaders who are equipped with the necessary skills to navigate and lead their communities through the dynamic challenges of modern society. We work with individuals who are able to engage and build bridges with the wider society and contribute to the common good of Britain as a whole. To achieve this aim, the programme supports the creation of a space for genuine dialogue and exchange between the Islamic sciences, the social sciences and humanities which will have applications in the intellectual and socio-cultural context of modern British society.
The signing ceremony took place on October 15th with many representatives from Muslim organisations in attendance where they were able to engage with a panel of experts, ask questions and discuss overcoming routes towards greater representation of their communities.
