Great Minds, Even Greater Dreams
WPI's annual MLK Commemorative Address highlights and memorializes the work, accomplishments, and legacy of one of the greatest Civil Rights and African American leaders in modern history.The MLK Commemorative Address is organized by the collective efforts of the Office of Multicultural Affairs and the Division of Talent and Inclusion. Each year an external speaker, through a keynote and potential civil service events, will engage the campus community and the greater Worcester community in actualizing Dr. King's ideals of social justice, protest, education, and service. In commemorating the late Dr. Rev. King, annually, we renew our commitment, as a community, to maintain his dream and its place on our campus. As we consider our current cultural climate, respect to one another, and peaceful discourse - all encompassed in our institutional values, this address reminds the campus of King’s legacy and how we are accountable to actualize it institutionally.
