Participants will check in with Dr. Marico Bryant Howe the day of the event.

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. once said that “life’s most persistent and urgent question is what are you doing for others?”  This year, the Chancellor’s Diversity and Inclusion Committee wanted to provide members of our campus community an opportunity to make an impact on the education of children in homeless/domestic violence shelters.  We seek to draw attention to the education gap that often exists in our society and to provide participants the opportunity to “do for others,” by giving educational material to children who are residing in homeless and domestic violence shelters.  This population of children were targeted due to our desire to reach children who may have the deepest need.  It is our hope that our 2018 MLK community service event will make a difference in the lives of young  people facing difficult circumstances.
