MLK Day 2018
While schools and businesses in the area are taking the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King’s birthday off as a holiday, University of Saint Francis students, faculty and staff will take a different approach. Paying tribute to him through “A Day On, Not a Day Off” allows us to commemorate through action the values of compassion, dignity, justice, and service that Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr embodied in his leadership. All USF students, faculty, staff as well as local community members are invited to join us for the following events (no classes at USF on this day).
All events will take place at the USF North Campus Building, 2701 Spring St. except for the off campus service projects. Free parking is available in the USF parking lot directly across the street on the North side of W. Berry St.
Monday, January 15, 2018 – All are invited to join us!
