Programs and Events
The Beloved Community
While progress toward this goal is always ongoing, Dr. King believed we can indeed achieve this when we work together to create an inclusive human family. King often spoke about the solidarity of the human family and how our personal growth—both our intellectual and moral growth— is the product of the depth of our relationships with others. The more inclusive we are, the more we all grow from the perspectives of others. Beloved Community programs and events are highlighted throughout the year.
Inclusive Community Grants
Inclusive community grants are open to all faculty, staff and students and will provide $250 to $2,500 in funding for a special project during the 2021-22 academic year. These projects should address a campus climate concern and promote dialogue among members of the campus community on topics such as race, socioeconomic status, age, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, national origin, religion, disability, to name a few.
Inclusive Community Fellowships
This fellowship will provide an opportunity for an Ursinus faculty member to pursue a project that advances the work of diversity and inclusion on campus.
We honor students, faculty, and staff who have gone the extra mile to advance inclusion and equity at Ursinus with the Annual Inclusion Awards.
Martin Luther King, Jr. Week
Every January, we begin the semester with a celebration of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and the legacy of the Civil Rights Movement.
