Dr. Mary Hums, a professor of sport administration at the University of Louisville, presents “Beyond Xs and Os: Utilizing the power of sport as a playbook for social change.” Sport has the unique potential to influence and promote social change because of its visibility and universal appeal, says Hums.

She has worked with colleague Eli Wolff to initiate the first International Day of Sport for Development and Peace, an initiative supported by the United Nations.
