MLK Day of Service at Lehigh University

The Martin Luther King, Jr., National Day of Service is a day each year when individuals across the country perform acts of service to make communities more equitable and take action to create the Beloved Community of Dr. King’s dream.

Thank you to all who joined in the 2024 day of service.  A sampling of photos is below.  Read about the efforts that faculty, staff and students participated in here.
