The call for nominations is open for the 2016 Martin Luther King Jr. Award for Community Service, which recognizes outstanding commitment to volunteer service by members of the Johns Hopkins community. All faculty, staff, graduate students, and retirees are eligible to be nominated to receive this award, and self-nominations are accepted.
The community service must have been completed during 2016 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 its impact. The deadline for submissions is Friday, Oct. 7.
The awards will be presented at the Martin Luther King Jr. Commemoration Celebration on Friday, Jan. 13, 2017, to those individuals who demonstrate the same spirit of volunteerism, citizenship, and activism that characterized King's life.
