Register now for the 4th annual MLK Day of Service. This event includes an inspirational breakfast with keynote speaker Dr. Verna Price and a day of service in the community. Faculty, staff, students and community members are welcomed to join us on this day to celebrate Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday and his dream for equality.

In the spirit of Dr. King’s dream, the theme for this year’s MLK Day of Service is “finding unity in the community.” What does community mean to you? The Day of Service always focuses on bringing together members of the community to help others through service projects at community organizations. This year, we are exploring what it means to find unity as a group working toward a similar goal.
