MARTIN LUTHER KING JR. DAY OF SERVICE
For the past 12 years, hundreds of Kutztown University students, and a few staff and faculty, have participated in dozens of organized service projects on Martin Luther King Jr. Day. Due to COVID-19 and students not returning to campus until the end of the month, we will not be doing in-person, large-group projects. This year, we invite staff, faculty and their families to participate in some kind of service for MLK Day of Service, either in your local community or doing virtual service at home. Use the link below for several options listed on ENGAGE. If you’re an advisor to a student organization, feel free to share with your student club leadership. https://engage.kutztown.edu/event/6653375
