Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration


On Monday, Jan. 20, 2020, Anderson University will celebrate the legacy of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. with a day of service projects, and opportunities for reflection and hands-on learning. Classes will be suspended for the day.

Each year, all students, faculty, staff, and the greater Anderson community are invited to come together to celebrate the life and legacy of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., to commit ourselves to the ongoing work for peace.
