On Saturday, February 20, 2016, Residence Life & Housing in collaboration with the Blue Hen Leadership Program (BHLP) will host the fifth annual MLK Day of Service to honor the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Traditionally, the national MLK Day of Service is held in January. However, in consideration of the University’s Winter Session, we will observe this day of service in February so that all UD students have the opportunity to serve in honor of Dr. King together.
This is YOUR opportunity to make a difference in the lives of others as a member of the Delaware community while a student at UD! By supporting the mission of our partnering agencies through your contributions on MLK Day of Service, you can serve others through the legacy of Dr. King’s work. However, your impact does not start nor stop at the MLK Day of Service.
You can engage with our community through the use of social media. Use the hashtag #MLKLegacyUD to share the ways in which you uphold the legacy of MLK, and to share about you service commitments. Post your photos on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter to start engaging with our community today!
