MLK Jr. Day of Engagement

Various Locations on Campus and Locally

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. once said, "Life's most persistent and urgent question is: 'What are you doing for others?'" Each year, people across the country answer that question by coming together on the King Holiday to serve their neighbors and communities. Created as a national call to service, it brings home the importance of working together to provide solutions for pressing social concerns.

The Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Engagement on January 21, 2019, sponsored by the Center for Civic Engagement, provides the Class of 2022 with opportunities to engage in and enhance the communities surrounding Bard College. The Class of 2022 will work with various volunteer organizations in the Hudson Valley to honor Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s legacy of promoting social justice, compassion and selfless contributions to our community.

Students will participate in engagement opportunities including working with children, animals, sustainability, health care organizations, and teaching science.
