Monday, January 18 marks the 26th anniversary of the day of service that celebrates the life of Martin Luther King Jr. and his work to advance civil rights. The University of St. Augustine for Health Sciences and all facilities will be closed Monday for MLK Day in observance of this commemoration.
Observing MLK Day through service, while doing so virtually and in a safe manner to comply with health and safety protocols, is a wonderful way to begin the year with a commitment to making our community a better place.
Dr. King believed that strength came from people working together as a whole and once stated, “Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, ‘What are you doing for others?’”
As a federal holiday designated as a national day of service to encourage all Americans to volunteer to improve their communities, we would love to hear how you are safely and creatively participating in MLK Day. Please email details and a photo, if available, to firstname.lastname@example.org, so we can feature in Campus Connection.
