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.

Leadership Advisory Board is a key component of the Engaged Scholar Program. It allows Scholars to take on a high level leadership role within the Program, to help the program further develop and evolve. The Leadership Advisory Board consists of the Program's President, vice-President, and the chairpersons from each committee.
Together, these members work to ensure that the overall flow of programmatic components of the Engaged Scholar Program run smoothly by developing ideas for social, service, and academic events.
The Program Engagement Committee works to develop programming for Scholars to come together and get to know one another.
The Academic and Professional Development Committee identifies areas of growth for Engaged Scholars, and works to create opportunities for Scholars by collaborating with campus and community partners to develop skills to be successful academically and professionally.
This committee serves to find ways to create opportunity for the broader metro-Detroit community through service and community engagement.
This committee helps recognize your fellow Scholars through programs like the Impact Awards or creating Scholar of the Month recognition. The committee also helps raise funds for the program so our Scholars can participate in extra opportunities.
This committee provides expertise on ways to create positive visibility and image of the Program and increase the reach of the Engaged Scholars Community through social media platforms.
