MLK Series 2021: Together, Even at a Distance


As an University serving students and alumni from 44 states and 117 countries, with 28.9 percent of its enrollment students of color and 15.9 percent international students, Binghamton University is committed to creating a campus community free from violence, hate and bias. The Binghamton University annual MLK Week will include events designed to foster inclusive community building and transformative learning opportunities that enhance Binghamton’s social and cultural impact. MLK Week aims to help Bearcats become more “world-wise” through engagement in and exploration of human and civil rights, forging connections with written and living history, and developing skills to become innovative change makers.

This year's MLK Week theme is "Working Together To Raise Us All". Dr. King's legacy lives on as we continue to work collaboratively towards social and economic equity. Various incidents over the past year have shown us the importance of collaborative efforts designed to bring various communities together in order to attain Dr King’s goal of equality. Through participation in MLK Week and engagement on and off campus, we encourage all Bearcats to think critically and creatively, to act boldly and courageously in order to find solutions to mutual problems, big and small.


MLK Series was founded by the Multicultural Resource Center and is sponsored by the Center for Civic Engagement; Division of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion; the Hinman College Public Service Learning Community; the Student Association Vice President of Multicultural Affairs; and the Cultural Presidents Council, made up of at least one student leader from each of the recognized cultural organizations, the Graduate Student Organization chartered cultural groups, cultural fraternities and sororities, and Student Organization Recognition Committee chartered cultural groups.
