Friday, January 12, 2018

Commemoration: Sundin Music Hall; 9:15-10:15 AM 

Day of Service: Off-Campus Locations; 10:30-12:30 PM

Join members of the University and neighboring communities for a celebration of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s life and legacy as we reflect upon his life, leadership and pursuit of racial and social justice.

In addition to the university commemoration, the MLK Day of Service offers our university community a tangible way for university members to purposefully act to transform Dr. King’s life and teachings into community building. During the MLK Day of Service, pre-registered faculty, staff and students will participate in service opportunities at one of six local community organizations on Friday, January 12 from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 PM.  Additionally, there will be a Participant Follow-up Lunch from 12:30-1:30

Additional information on these events, including the registration process for MLK Day of Service component will be available on January 2, with registration running until January 2-10, 2018.
