Dear campus community,

As the 2016 spring semester begins and we celebrate the Martin Luther King holiday, it offers us a prime opportunity for reflection, renewal, and action. It enables us to think about the current social and racial issues we face and how we can come together to improve relationships.  It also provides a time to honor the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King. His contributions continue to inspire our work and offer us the opportunity to build upon the civil and human rights work he dedicated his life to and gave his life for.
