MLK Day of Service & Sunday Supper



Civic Engagement (a unit of the Student Engagement and the  Division of Student Life) joins the campus community in honoring the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. by sponsoring the annual MLK Day of Service and Sunday Supper events.  These student-focused, student-led events are key pillars that provide opportunities for dialogue, direct action, and reflection. Please visit the Institute Diversity page for information on other events in the 2017 Martin Luther King, Jr. celebration.
