Each year, Ithaca College chooses a central theme for its annual MLK Day celebration. This year's theme is "Where Do You Stand," derived from the quote, "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." This was taken from a Dr. King sermon entitled, "On Being a Good Neighbor."

The weeklong-plus schedule of events from January 25 through February 2 include a kick-off event featuring the MLK Scholars and a Diversity Listening Session hosted by President Rochon, educational workshops on Tuesday and Thursday, the "Take a Stand" Social Justice Fair on Wednesday, the MLK Day of Service on Saturday (register by Wednesday, January 27 to participate), and a conversation with President Rochon on Tuesday, February 2. Keep reading for all the details or visit the MLK Celebration website:
