Resources and Reflections

Day of Service Events | Highlights of Rev. Barber's Written Works | Reserve your Seat

The Martin Luther King, Jr., Convocation is a part of a larger, sustained conversation on racial justice. Loyola encourages students, faculty, and staff to continue the conversation on campus and in the Loyola community, which is in line with the great Jesuit traditions of reflection, discernment, and engagement amid the University's commitment to social justice and care and concern for others. Related events—on and off campus—may help facilitate discussion. Loyola hopes that you may seek out organizations and events doing the work of racial justice in your communities at Loyola, in Baltimore, and beyond. You might seek out such conversations and trace the threads between them.

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Day of Service Events

In addition to attending the Convocation, we encourage you to make Martin Luther King, Jr., Day, January 20, an active and thoughtful one to reflect on the legacy and work of Dr. King. A list of service-day activities being offered throughout the city will get listed as they are available.
