2013 MLK Celebration: CPS Faculty Involvement & Contributions

In the spirit of Dr. King’s legacy and vision, collaborative and community-wide efforts and contributions resulted in an inspirational and well-attended celebration on January 19, 2013.   Among the active contributors to the event include several faculty and staff within the College of Professional Studies.  Involvement in this event reflects one of the primary values of the programs within Professional Studies: To Serve the Public Good.
