MLK Day On

MLK Day 2023 

Theme: Who is Our Beloved Community?

The University of Portland community considers Martin Luther King, Jr. Day as a day ON! Not a day off. This year will offer another opportunity to reflect on how Dr. King’s work can be seen through the lens of our mission in the areas of teaching and learning, faith and formation, and service and leadership. Our theme invites us to center our attention on knowing, appreciating, and building our beloved community.
