The call for nominations is open for the 2017 Martin Luther King Jr. Award for Community Service, which recognizes outstanding commitments to volunteer service by members of the Johns Hopkins community. All faculty, staff, employees, graduate students, and retirees are eligible to be nominated to receive this award.
The community service must have been completed during 2017 and should not be a part of the individual's duties at Johns Hopkins. You may want to review the information with the nominee to ensure that you have the most accurate information regarding his or her volunteer work and the impact of the work. The deadline for submission is Friday, Sept. 15.
Community Service awards will be presented at the Martin Luther King Jr. Commemoration Celebration in January 2018 to those individuals demonstrating the same spirit of volunteerism, citizenship, and activism that characterized the life of Dr. King, who personified a deep faith in what people working together could accomplish for themselves and their nation.
