The Martin Luther King Center respectfully acknowledges that the University of Kentucky sits on the traditional territories of the Osage, Shawnee, Cherokee, Adena and Hopewell peoples.
The Martin Luther King Center seeks to empower University of Kentucky students across identities to improve their college experience by promoting access to academic, civic leadership and cultural exchange opportunities rooted in Dr. King's philosophy.
The Center also develops events which promote cultural awareness, leadership development and foster community through collaborative efforts with student organizations, campus partners and faculty to enhance belonging and student success.
The Center works to provide a campus wide "brave space" for civic dialogue and community building. We advocate for under-served students populations to develop their cultural identity without fear of harassment and with the support of others striving to do the same.
