Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Awards Ceremony and Luncheon

Each year, the Division of Equity and Inclusion recognizes university classified staff, faculty and officers of administration whose contributions to the campus community, beyond typical job expectations, also uphold and exemplify ideals supported by Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. 

“We must come to see that the end we seek is a society at peace with itself, a society that can live with its conscience.”
- Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
