MLKC Scholar in Residence

The MLKC Scholar-in-Residence Program is a new initiative developed by the Office for Institutional Diversity. The goals of this new program are four fold:

  • To aid the Director of the center in enhancing the scholarly programming offered by the center.
  • To give even greater emphasis to Dr. King’s focus on global social justice.
  • To continue the center’s long history of outreach programming into the Lexington community.
  • To move the center more closely to the center of academic life at the university involving faculty on a rotating bi-annual basis.
