A "day on, not a day off." That's the spark for the UMN Martin Luther King, Jr. Community Service Volunteer Pledge Drive. Inspired by the national MLK Day of Service, this pilot project on the Twin Cities campus aims to promote service opportunities for faculty, staff, and students while advancing the University's mission of public engagement for the common good.
Through a voluntary "Take the Pledge" web page, the project will also provide a snapshot of the community volunteer hours U faculty, staff, and students contribute each year.
Pledge any amount of volunteer community service hours through March 31 and complete pledged hours by Friday, May 17.
