Martin Luther King Jr.

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service

On January 17, 2022 let’s start the semester together to build a stronger campus community!
The Martin Luther King Jr. holiday is the 27th anniversary of the day of service that celebrates the Civil Rights leader’s life and legacy. Observed each year on the third Monday in January as “a day on, not a day off,” MLK Day is the only federal holiday designated as a national day of service to encourage all Americans to volunteer to improve their communities. Camden County College looks forward to your engagement and accomplishments in Dr. King’s memory.

“Everybody can be great, because anybody can serve. You don’t have to have a college degree to serve. You don’t have to make your subject and verb agree to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love.”
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
