2017 MLK Student Appreciation Brunch

2017 Chancellor's MLK Student Appreciation Brunch Saturday, Jan. 28, 2017 Everybody makes a difference! Shine a light on a deserving student!

What is it? The Chancellor's Martin Luther King Jr. Student Appreciation program is an annual event celebrating the many contributions of students who make a difference at UAA. It is an opportunity for the chancellor to recognize the students you recommend and honor one of Dr. King's important messages: We, as individuals, can make a difference in the lives of others and in our communities.

Staff and faculty members recommend students who serve our campus community, both in the limelight as well as behind the scenes. Please honor those students by submitting their names for this recognition.

All recommended students, as well as all staff and faculty who submit recommendations, are invited to the brunch on Saturday, Jan. 28, 2017, at 11 a.m. in the Student Union. Our keynote speaker is Payton Head, a community organizer/activist and University of Missouri alumnus/former student body president. Mr. Head will also host a private workshop with students as part of his visit.

This program is coordinated by Student Activities & Commuter Student Programs, in conjunction with the Chancellor's Office.

Which students may be recommended? UAA has many students who give of themselves in ways that are often not recognized. This is your chance to acknowledge any student who has made a difference.

Who can recommend students? Any UAA staff or faculty member may recommend students. We request you limit recommendations to no more than three students.

How do you recommend your students? You can recommend up to three students who make a difference and can do so at the MLK Student Appreciation website. The deadline for recommendations is 5 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 17, 2017.

The Chancellor looks forward to celebrating our students and Dr. King's legacy with you on Saturday, Jan. 28, 2017. If you have any questions about this event, please call (907) 786-1219 or email uaa_mlk@alaska.edu.
