Martin Luther King Jr. Day Designated as University Holiday

The University has designated Martin Luther King Jr. Day as a University holiday for all employees, effective on January 16, 2017. Nationally, this federal holiday celebrates the life and legacy of Dr. King, who was a champion of racial justice and equality and whose teachings were about the values of courage, truth, justice, compassion, dignity, humility, and service. This is one of many steps the University is taking to make Princeton a more welcoming and supportive community for all of our members. For more information about these efforts, refer to the University website.

Previously, the University has honored the memory and contributions of Dr. King by hosting an annual event for members of the Princeton community. As a University holiday, faculty and staff will have the opportunity to acknowledge this day as they see fit, such as by engaging in various service-related activities with coworkers, friends, and/or family members.
