The Department of Sports and the Sports Council of Al Akhawayn University students organize the National University Sports Symposium under the theme: University sport between expectations and realities.

The symposium is to take place on March 6th, 2013 at Al-Akhawayn University in Ifrane, 170 kilometers (106 miles) east of Rabat.

Moroccan university sport has recently seen many disruptions in terms of management, operation and organization. Consequently, the symposium aims at investigating the current situation of university sport and exploring the possibilities of its revival and rehabilitation.

In addition, the conference aims at addressing and highlighting the role that university sport can play in the development of national sport whose presence at the continental and international level has remarkably declined in the last decade.

The symposium will also discuss the legal framework of university sport in light of the new constitution.

This event will bring together all those responsible for university sport in Moroccan universities, officials of the Royal Moroccan Federation of University Sports, the Director of the National University of Cultural and Social Works (ONUSC) and members of the Moroccan press.

The schedule of the symposium includes seven presentations, five workshops, debate and finally the symposium appraisal.
