MLK Day is TODAY!

Every year the college celebrates the history and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King in our MLK Day Celebrations. This year’s theme is a ‘Single Garment of Destiny’ and will feature many educational sessions that relate to Dr. King’s vision in our modern global society. These sessions are open to all members of the Ithaca College Community. For students, each presentation will count towards SLI Credit in the Leading in a Diverse World Series. To receive SLI credit for any of these events, please log into OrgSync and register for the sessions.
