WHERE DO YOU STAND?
The Office of Student Engagement and Multicultural Affairs is excited to offer you a preview of 2010's MLK celebration activities.

The Out of the Closet and Onto the Screen film series will host a free public screening of the documentary, A Closer Walk, on Tuesday, December 1. The 7:00 p.m. showing in Textor 101 is being held in observance of World AIDS Day.
The Martin Luther King Jr. Holiday will be celebrated in 2010 during the first week of classes, January 25-29, 2010 (as the Federal holiday falls this year prior to the return of students).
The planning committee is soliciting academic presentations as part of this week of celebration and service. This year's theme is: Where Do You Stand? This year's theme was selected from the following quote adapted from Dr. Martin Luther King Jr: "The ultimate measure of individuals is not where they stand in moments of comfort and convenience, but where they stand at times of challenge and controversy.
The answer: You do! As valuable as your classroom education is, employers are expecting students to graduate with practical experience as well. An internship is not just an add-on to your college experience, it's a critical component!
