MLK Week of Service
The MLK Week of Service has become a hallmark event coordinated by the Office of Community Engagement, attracting nearly 300-400 participants. In honor of Dr. King’s spirit of service and peace, the aim of the the MLK Day of Service is to engage Oxy students, staff, faculty, and alumni in community-based projects.
Many of the community partners we work with have well-established relationships with the OCE or other offices (such as the UEPI and the CCBL), and we strive to sustain these relationships by creating mutually beneficial projects and educational opportunities for our students. Most community partners speak very highly of Oxy students and they are appreciative of the service project collaborations. Similarly, students are provided with the opportunity to become familiar with important community-based work and some even decide to return as volunteers or interns. By coordinating projects that offer meaningful co-curricular learning, the MLK Day of service upholds Oxy’s mission of excellence, equity, community, and service.
Registration for the MLK Day of service is open. The deadline to sign up is Monday, January 14, 2013.
The MLK Day of Service is supported by the Corporation for National and Community Service.
