To commemorate the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. our campus will proudly be hosting a week of programs and events dedicated to honoring the memory of this great American Icon. One of our biggest and most cherished campus traditions, the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Annual Day of Service, will be celebrating its 28th year.

Volunteers from across campus and the surrounding community will come together on Monday, January 18, to lend a helping hand and inspire long lasting and positive change throughout the Metro Detroit area. Volunteers will work remotely to support Detroit-area schools and community agencies in fulfilling their valuable missions.
