Anderson University To Host Annual MLK Day Celebration


Anderson, Ind. — Anderson University is set to host its annual Martin Luther King Jr. Day celebration Jan. 16 and 17 on campus. 

Each year, on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, AU suspends classes so that all students, faculty, staff, and the greater Anderson community are able to come together to celebrate the life and legacy of the late Rev.

The annual celebration kicks off with a Peace & Justice March from Reardon Auditorium to the Paramount Theatre in downtown Anderson. Below is a full event schedule with more events to come throughout the month of January.
