Each year, the Office of the President, the Office of the Provost, the Chief Diversity Officer, the Tisch College of Civic Life, the University Chaplaincy, the Center for the Study of Race and Democracy, and the Africana Center work with a committee of faculty, staff, and students to organize Tufts University’s Martin Luther King, Jr. Observances. Together, the committee organizes programming that celebrates, reflects on, and seeks to continue the work of The Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
