Each year, faculty and students, join together to honor the life of Martin Luther King, Jr. with a day of service and education.

2014 MLK Day Events

SNC faculty/staff as well as students who are on campus during winter break have the opportunity to celebrate the life and work of Martin Luther King Jr. by devoting part or all of their day in either teaching elementary students about King’s message of respect for others, assisting area social service agencies who are serving those in need and by participating in an immigration simulation. This Day of Service is endorsed by the president’s cabinet at St. Norbert College.

Service at various locations in the community

1-4 p.m.
Immigration Simulation on campus in Michels Ballroom

SNC faculty/staff as well as students who are on campus during winter break have the opportunity to celebrate the life and work of Martin Luther King Jr. by devoting part or all of their day to participate in the following opportunities:

Join together for an opening gathering in the Campus Center and bring a non-perishable food item to be donated to the De Pere Christian Outreach Food Pantry.

Morning: Serve by either teaching elementary students in De Pere schools about King’s message of respect for others or by assisting area social service agencies who are serving those in need.

Afternoon: Recognizing that civil rights and immigration issues are closely tied together, we are offering a Latino simulation, Walk in Our Shoes: Understanding the Latino Experience.
The three-hour simulation gives participants an opportunity to learn first-hand about the problems and obstacles faced by Latino immigrants in our community—problems like getting jobs, entering school or obtaining health care.

You may choose to participate in both the morning service opportunity and the afternoon immigration simulation or only one of these opportunities, as your schedule allows.
