Undergraduate Academic Affairs

The legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. continues with demonstrations of strength, resiliency and compassion. During MLK week, University of Washington students, faculty and staff partnered with surrounding communities to serve and lead together. From prepping food at meal centers and cleaning up neighborhood centers to sharing their stories through the creativity of hip hop and performance poetry, see the different ways they worked toward creating a more beloved community.

Enjoy these photos of the students, community members and others in events designed to honor the memory of MLK through service.

Birthday Kickoff and Mobile Museum

A celebration of King’s birthday helped kickoff the week, along with the return of the mobile museum. The museum, which exhibits more than 150 rare artifacts, had a specific focus on 1968, the year of King’s death.

Day of Service

Each year, the University of Washington and the United Way of King County host the Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service. Through this event, nearly 2,000 volunteers provide vital people-power to organizations that support our county’s most vulnerable populations.

Hip Hop Show

To close #UWMLKWeek, the UW Hip Hop Student Association produced the “Still Dreaming” showcase to honor the messages that King presented to the world in his “I Have a Dream” speech.
