Where Do We Go From Here: Chaos or Community?
This year has been a challenging time for higher education—from a global pandemic that uprooted the lives of students, faculty, and others to ongoing protests in the wake of the murder of George Floyd by Minneapolis police.
These events and others have renewed important conversations about social justice and inequality of opportunity throughout the country.
As we prepare to celebrate the legacy of Martin Luther King Jr. on January 18, 2021, we do so against a backdrop of great division in America. Now more than ever, the ideas that Dr. King so fervently believed in can be lessons for real and lasting change: equality, diversity, and love.
IU's 2021 theme, "Where Do We Go From Here: Chaos or Community?," the title of Martin Luther King's final book, underscores this very sentiment with virtual programs, workshops, and opportunities exemplifying the humane causes espoused by this great civil rights leader — and offers opportunities to educate, learn, and grow.
