Yasmeen Ali leads and develops academic programmes in Community Leadership. The programme incorporates practice-based learning, providing students with professional experience in community action, mentoring and leading on community projects. Formed using a transformative framework, the academic courses examine students’ own ontological and epistemological assumptions, values and beliefs. Through contextualising and reconceptualising their reality, students are equipped to work with and guide others in translating their perspectives, perceptions and goals into agendas for social change.
