MLK Day of Service

The MLK Day of Service Planning Committee has coordinated a wide range of service projects and activities for students, faculty and staff to participate in during USciences MLK Day of Service on Monday, Jan. 15, 2018 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

To honor the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., the University community will be united for a day of service dedicated to bettering the community, empowering individuals, and bridging barriers. While classes have been canceled, MLK Day of Service is a day on, not a day off. 

This year's service projects include:

Community clean-ups:

  • Woodland Avenue Corridor
  • 48th and Woodland Playground
  • Cancer Support Community

Community health fair

USciences Youth Health and Science Fair

You may sign up online to participate in community clean ups. Please contact your department for more information about participating in the health and science fairs.
