The university is preparing to celebrate the legacy of Martin Luther King Jr. on January 18, 2021, against a backdrop of great division in America. In the face of this adversity, Dr. King's ideals of equality, diversity, and love are more important and relevant than ever. IU's 2021 theme, "Where Do We Go From Here: Chaos or Community,” the title of Martin Luther King’s final book, underscores this very sentiment with virtual programs, workshops, and opportunities exemplifying the humane causes espoused by this great civil rights leader. Events and activities to educate, learn, and grow include a day-long conference, award opportunities, and a Virtual Day Toolkit.

If you have COVID-19 symptoms, set up an appointment with the IU Health Virtual Screening Clinic for testing next steps.
