Honoring the Life and Legacy of Martin Luther King Jr.

Each year on Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Indiana University faculty, staff, students, and the community at large reflect on the life and legacy of Dr. King. As a community, we collaboratively envision ways to carry forward his work and participate in impactful, inclusive, and engaging programming which honors Dr. King in a manner relevant today.

Through a range of activities, including Indiana University's annual social justice conference, workshops, films, panel discussions, and acclaimed speakers, we invite all community and university members to join us in observing and recognizing Dr. King's commitment to social justice and global peace.
