Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service Event

MLK Week of Service Event: Jan. 16 - Jan. 20, 2022

Events celebrating Martin Luther King, Jr. Day at Southwest Minnesota State University have been cancelled.

Several events had been planned on Jan. 16 and 17.

The action comes at the request of the King family, which has asked there be no MLK Day celebrations without federal action on the pending voting rights legislation. The MLK Day organizing committee at SMSU wants to honor their wishes.

Instead, alternative programming will be scheduled in the future to inform the SMSU community about the two voting rights bills currently in the legislative process.
