Community Events for Martin Luther King Jr. Day

Location: Local Community

On January 16, we celebrate Martin Luther King Jr. Day. This day is a holiday for students, faculty, and staff.

So that we might all have the opportunity to honor Dr. King’s legacy on MLK Day in our own ways—by participating in a service project, attending events in the local community, worshiping in our faith communities, engaging in dialogue with friends and colleagues, or spending time with our families and loved ones—we will not plan any campus-wide observances that day.

In South Bend
