Annually, the 6 schools of the Health Sciences and UWMC pay tribute to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., through a celebration honoring his life and legacy. The tribute acknowledges UW students, faculty, staff, and community members engaged in community service and volunteerism through a Distinguished Service Award (one from each school) and a Community Service Award.
This award honors individuals or groups who exemplify Martin Luther King, Jr.’s principles through:
- Commitment to addressing community needs, particularly communities of color and low income
- Development and implementation of significant programs to improve the human condition
- Outstanding efforts to protect and empower all individuals
This event is free and open to the public.
