Campus Events for Martin Luther King, Jr, Day

January 21, 2019 10:30 AM until January 21, 2019 4:00 PM Simplot South Lecture, Symposium

With a campus as diverse as the one at The College of Idaho, it's no surprise that it is abuzz with activities surrounding Martin Luther King, Jr, Day on January 21.  We'd like to thank the International Student Organization (ISO) and the Office of Inclusion & Intercultural Engagement for all of its help in making these events happen.

10:30 AM at Simplot South: Poverty Simulation, facilitated by Claudia Suastegui of the YMCA.  The poverty simulation experience is designed to help participants begin to understand what it might be like to live in a typical low-income family trying to survive from month to month. The objective is to sensitize participants to the realities faced by low-income people. 

11:00 AM at Simplot South: Service focused on less privileged.  Hygiene Kits will be organized by College of Idaho volunteers, then distributed to local school districts through United Way. These kits will help school age homeless students in Canyon and Ada County.

1:30 PM at Langroise Recital Hall: AFRO (African Americans, Friends, Relatives, and Others) club, panel discussion, "Progress through Reflection." Panelists include Mee-Ae Kim – professor of History, Lisa Sanchez – Boise City Council, Van Beechler – Chair of the LGBTA Democratic Caucus, and a soon to be announced interfaith representative.

3:00 PM at McCain Student Center: Reflection led by student leaders
