Call for nominations: Martin Luther King Jr. Community Service Awards

Dear Colleagues:

Today, as our city and nation face more complex and growing social problems, many of us are committed to helping people in need and building stronger and healthier communities.

We are pleased to announce the call for nominations for the 2016 Martin Luther King Jr. Community Service Awards, which recognize outstanding commitments to community service. All Johns Hopkins faculty members, staff members, residents, postdocs, students, and retirees are eligible to be nominated to receive this award, and self-nominations are accepted.

The awards will be presented at the 35th Martin Luther King Jr. Commemoration on Friday, Jan. 13, 2017, to eight individuals who have demonstrated the same spirit of volunteerism, citizenship, and activism that characterized the life of Dr. King. He personified a deep faith in what people working together could accomplish for themselves and our nation. The 2017 celebration will mark our 23rd annual presentation of community service awards.

Please take a moment to reflect on your community outreach efforts or those of a colleague.

Share their accomplishments and contributions with us by nominating them for a 2016 Martin Luther King Jr. Community Service Award. Please visit the MLK Jr. Community Service Awards website for the details and nomination form. The deadline for submissions is Friday, Oct. 14.

If you have any questions, please contact Brittanie Gioioso at or 443-997-7000. Thank you for helping us recognize those who are making a difference.
