January 10, 2015

In celebration of his many contributions to racial equality, UDM will be hosting events on Monday, Jan. 19 and Thursday, Jan. 22 in honor of Martin Luther King, Jr.

The week begins with a service opportunity through UDM’s Campus Kitchen on Monday, Jan. 19. The event, sponsored by Campus Kitchen and UDM’s service fraternity, Alpha Phi Omega, will give students the chance to give back on their day off.

Participants will be delivering food to Gleaners Community Food Bank, the largest nonprofit organization providing food for Southeastern Michigan. UDM students interested in volunteering must contact Rachel Joseph at by Friday, Jan. 16. Limited space is available.

UDM’s Martin Luther King Jr. and Black History Month committees, co-sponsored by Student Affairs, will host a commemoration discussion on Thursday, Jan. 22 from 7:00 p.m. - 8:30 p.m. at the Fountain Lounge in the Student Center on the McNichols Campus.

Students, faculty, staff and community are invited to discuss and examine how Dr. King's message can guide us in light of the recent events in our country around race, class and socio-economic disparity.

This event is open to the public with no RSVP required. Light refreshments will be provided.
