MLK Day of Service 2019 Registration Form

The Dr. MLK Jr. Day of Service takes place on Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day every January. Since there is no class held on this day, we characterize it as “a day on, not a day off”.

Each year, approximately 150 students, faculty, staff, and friends of the UIC community participate in honoring Dr. King's legacy by serving our local communities.

This year's Dr. MLK Jr. Day of Service will take place on January 21, 2019, and offers a number of different sites/projects in the Chicagoland area. 

Registrations received prior to January 16, 2019, will be given priority.
