MLK Week of Service

In observance of the federal holiday honoring Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., UNCP’s Office for Community and Civic Engagement is encouraging students, faculty, staff, and community to celebrate the life and legacy of Dr. King through volunteering and service to others. The MLK Week of Service will empower individuals, strengthen communities, bridge barriers, create solutions to social problems, and move us closer to Dr. King’s vision of a beloved community.


The first 200 people that attend a UNCP wrestling match or basketball game wearing a #DreamBrave wristband from volunteering during MLK Week will receive a gift from Athletics! Limited supply!
