Nominations: MLK Community Involvement Recognition Awards
November 21, 2006, Volume 53, No. 13

In honor of the late Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s recognition that community service is essential to the struggle for equality, the 2007 Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Commemorative Symposium on Social Change Executive Planning Committee of the University of Pennsylvania is pleased to announce the 12th Annual Community Involvement Recognition Awards. The awards honor members of the Philadelphia region whose active service to others best exemplifies the ideals Dr. King espoused.

Two years ago, a new Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Community Education Award in honor of Dr. Judith Rodin, Penn’s president, 1994-2004, was added to recognize her commitment to education,  service and Dr. King’s vision.

The Community Involvement Recognition Awards will be presented to:

1. Staff, faculty and students of the Penn community involved in community service.

2. Residents of the broader neighborhood involved in community service.

3. Staff, faculty, students or residents who demonstrate significant contributions in community service through the advancement of education and educational opportunities in the Philadelphia region.

The awards will be presented on January 18, 2007 as part of Penn’s commemoration of the King holiday.

We seek your help in nominating individuals whose work most merits recognition. Please share this information with others in your schools, departments, and organizations so that we may identify those most deserving of this award. Nomination forms may be submitted through December 8, 2006. Forms may also be submitted online at: www.upenn.edu/aarc/mlk/award.htm.

Should you have any questions, please contact the African-American Resource Center at (215) 898-0104 or e-mail aarc@pobox.upenn.edu.
