Dr. Martin Luther King Commemoration
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. once said that “Life’s most persistent and urgent question is: What are you doing for others?” The College of Wooster honors the National MLK Day of Service theme with events centered on service, justice, and equity each year.
MLK Day 2018
The 2018 MLK Celebration at the College of Wooster will be held on January 15, 2018.
A Part of the MLK Day of Service Tradition
In 1983 a federal holiday marking the birthday of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., was created and in 1994 Congress designated the Martin Luther King Jr. Federal Holiday as a national day of service and charged the Corporation for National and Community Service with leading this effort.
Taking place each year on the third Monday in January, the MLK Day of Service is the only federal holiday observed as a national day of service – a "day on, not a day off." The MLK Day of Service is a part of United We Serve, the President's national call to service initiative.
