Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service
Kansas Campus Compact, with the support of the North Carolina Campus Compact, is proud to promote the 2011 Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service program by offering $2,500 in five sub-grants to campuses creating or expanding MLK Jr. Day of Service curricular or co-curricular service-learning activities that contribute to physically, emotionally, and economically healthier families, especially among low-income Kansans. The goal of Kansas Campus Compact (KsCC) is to strengthen the civic engagement and community service elements of higher education in Kansas and help institutions build sustained relationships between their students and faculty and their neighborhoods and communities. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day is January 17, 2011.
Kansas Campus Compact is inviting member institutions of higher education to apply for funding for initiatives that support collaborative campus efforts to honor the life of Dr. King. It is also a way of reminding all Americans of their civic duty to serve, as well as helping members of the community to work together to solve common problems. This grant opportunity is designed to provide meaningful, service to the state and its citizens.
