On March 15–17, 2018, Al Akhawayn University in Ifrane's (AUI) very own Multimedia Librarian—Aziz El Hassani—attended Harvard Graduate School of Education's professional seminar series entitled "Library Leadership in a Digital Age". The series sought to show librarians how to maximize their institutions' libraries' efficiency, thereby enabling them to order their affairs in such a way that benefits the creativity that oftentimes characterizes the progressive minds of their schools' professorial and student bodies.
SHSS Professor Vesna Dragojlov gave a seminal lecture entitled "Risk Change" at the Serbian Museum of African Art that discussed the status of design and art in Morocco. The lecture, which drew large crowds, merited enough follow-up TV interviews and newspaper mentions that Dr. Dragojlov has been called back for a subsequent lecture in June. Coincidentally, the museum will be dedicating an entire exhibit to Morocco.
