by Center for Diversity and Inclusion

The Center for Diversity and Inclusion (CDI) is proud to announce the 34th Annual Martin Luther King Jr. Day (MLK Day) Celebration on Monday (Jan. 16). In preparation for the event, the CDI will host a poster-making session for students tomorrow (Jan. 11). Student works will be displayed in an exhibit at the J. R. Van Pelt and John and Ruanne Opie Library throughout the month.

Monday morning will begin in the spirit of service, as Michigan Tech students read books on Martin Luther King Jr. in our local schools. At noon, the Van Pelt and Opie Library will host a prayer vigil, where our religious communities on campus will read excerpts from King’s works. Finally, we will end the day with our MLK Banquet beginning at 5:30 p.m., where notable alum Tayloria Adams will deliver the keynote address. Registration information is to come.
