The Martin Luther King Commemoration Committee at Vanderbilt is administered by a committee of faculty, students, and staff. It is funded by an annual appropriation from the University.

We welcome committed and thoughtful student, faculty, and staff volunteers. Many different responsibilities are available, from event planning to publicity promotion.

Vanderbilt students, faculty and staff may sign the waiver form to ride the bus to the MLK community march and receive a free MLK hoodie at
