 Every January, the Ithaca College community celebrates the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr through a series of programs sponsored by the Office of Student Engagement & Multicultural Affairs. 


Back in 2008, when the first day of classes fell on the national holiday, President Emerita Peggy Williams declared the first day of classes as a "Day on, not Off." The day is celebrated as a day of reflection and celebration with programs and activities in lieu of classroom instruction. President Thomas Rochon continues in this tradition, encouraging all to come together in honor or Dr. King's impact on the world. During years where the holiday falls before the first day of classes, the campus community spends the first week of classes in celebration with various events and programs, as well as discussions. You can find more information about MLK Day here.
