MLK Day- a day-on, not off for many at UNI
"Life's most persistent and urgent question is: 'What are you doing for others?'" – Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Students, faculty and staff at the University of Northern Iowa will take that question to heart during the Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service on Monday, Jan. 21, in the Cedar Valley. The event is sponsored by UNI's Student Involvement Center.
The program will include a guest speaker and a community service project. Volunteers can choose from a variety of experiences including the Northeast Iowa Food Bank, the Catholic Worker House, Country View Nursing Home, Cedar Valley Hospitality House, the Iowa Green AmeriCorps and more.
The event will end with a luncheon and guest speaker, Michael Blackwell, director of UNI's Center for Multicultural Education. He will speak about Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and the value of service in our communities.
UNI's Lifelong University will offer five noncredit courses this spring. Registration is open; the first course begins Feb. 7.
