We’re proud of our connection to Dr. King, and we celebrate his legacy through campus events, as well as in our hearts. Please join us for a week of university wide programing to commemorate the life and legacy of Martin Luther King, Jr.

This conference is for high school and college level students and is free for all of those that would like to attend. *In-person attendance is limited due to COVID-19.*
