Community Service as "service or experiential learning", is an integral part of the Scholars Program. Learning related to the tasks performed focuses on broader social, political, historical, and cultural issues. In-class dialogue and presentations provide opportunities for reflection about service experiences. On-site service, exchange and discussion give scholars opportunity to develop critical leadership skills to become active “change agents.”
A Martin Luther King, Jr. Scholars Program hallmark event is the Annual MLK, Jr. Scholars Teach-In at local public schools. During spring semester, Scholars will engage junior high and high school students in workshops and other activities on social justice and how Dr. King’s legacy can be translated into the everyday in their schools and communities.
