16th Annual MLK Challenge

Location: Central Campus, Zeiss Building, Room 1100

Honor the Legacy of MLK, Serve our Community, Meet other Central Piedmont Students

The MLK Challenge celebrates the life and teachings of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. The day incorporates an educational kick-off, service projects, and a reflection wrap-up. We will begin with an introduction to King’s life and lessons. Then, you will be randomly assigned to groups, and given a service project at a local organization to complete. You must work together with your group and use problem-solving skills to finish your task.

You will receive:

  • breakfast, lunch, and dinner
  • a free T-shirt
  • eight hours of service

Remember that there are no classes on this date.


  • You must be a Central Piedmont student registered for the spring 2020 term.
  • You must stay for the entire event.
  • Please dress for anything.
