MLK Celebration Week

Power at its best is love implementing the demands of justice, and justice at its best is power correcting everything that stands against love.

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
"Where do we go from here?", 1967

Each year, Northwest Missouri State University celebrates the life of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. during the third week of January. The 2024 theme, It Starts with Me: Shifting the Culture Through Social Change, aims to represent the transformative power of social change through programs, service, and events co-sponsored by the Office of Diversity and Inclusion. As we continue to bear witness to society’s current struggles, we are looking to explore how we, as individuals, can collectively be vehicles of change at Northwest and within our communities.
