A Day On, Not a Day Off

The spirit of giving back is strong at Indiana University.

Volunteerism is perhaps the hallmark of IU’s MLK Jr. Celebration activities. Every year, hundreds of students, faculty, staff, and Bloomington community members spend a day in service of others — honoring the legacy of The Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and improving our community at the same time.
