Each year, Canisius College honors members of the campus community who promote the ideals that Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. championed in his life and work.  These ideals involve promoting racial harmony; working for social justice, civil rights, and human rights; espousing non-violence; and being an advocate for the poor.  Canisius College would like to acknowledge a student and/or a non-student (faculty, staff, or administrator) who demonstrates qualities of those ideals.

Nominations for MLK awards must be submitted by Friday, February 10, 2012.  Nomination forms are located throughout the campus, and are also available online here.  In addition to online submissions, nominations may also be submitted in hard copy to Office of Student Affairs (OM 102) or to Campus Programming & Leadership Development (SC-LL).

Also listed on the webpage are past recipients and members of the MLK Awards Committee.  Testimonials from past recipients are also on the site.

Please take a moment to consider college members whom are deserving of this recognition by honoring them with a submission of a nomination.  The MLK Awards are presented at the Spring Honors Convocation.
