Martin Luther King Day of Service on Monday, January 21

Sent Tuesday, Jan. 8, 2018

To the Campus Community:

I am pleased to report that Rutgers University–Camden is buzzing with activity at the start of the new year.

Our winter session is in full swing and our law students will start their semester on Monday, January 14. The spring semester for the rest of our community starts on Tuesday, January 22. Our women’s and men’s basketball teams will compete in a number of home and away games before the start of the semester. I encourage you to check out their schedules and cheer them on to victory.

During this time, our faculty and students continue to pursue research innovations that hold the potential to define new boundaries of knowledge, while our reputation as a national model for civically engaged universities continues to grow and attract to Rutgers University–Camden the best and brightest students, faculty, and staff who seek opportunities to help transform communities.

Each of us has an opportunity to make a difference in our neighborhood shortly. During the Martin Luther King Day of Service on Monday, January 21, members of the Rutgers University–Camden community will participate in activities that will enhance the quality of life for families and organizations in Camden. These efforts will honor the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and spotlight Rutgers–Camden’s characteristic passion for civic engagement and collaboration.

Under the auspices of our Office of Civic Engagement, Rutgers–Camden will collaborate with a diverse array of community partners to advance projects throughout our host city and region.

Many activities are available for students, faculty, staff, alumni, and their families. Whether you choose to participate in campus initiatives or undertake other forms of engagement, I encourage you to take some time to improve your community, on January 21 and throughout the year.

I hope that you will join me at the 2019 Martin Luther King Day of Service on Monday, January 21. I send best wishes for a happy and successful new year.

Phoebe A. Haddon, J.D., LL.M.
Chancellor
