To commemorate the life of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Grand Valley will host four virtual or in-person presentations by speakers and a day of service.
The annual commemoration week will run January 17-22 with the theme, #EquityinEducation. All events are free and open to the public, more details are online at gvsu.edu/mlk.
This marks the first year Grand Valley will be closed in recognition of the national holiday (Monday, January 17). President Philomena V. Mantella announced that decision last June during a Board of Trustees meeting, acting on a recommendation from the university's Network of Advisors for Racial Justice.
