Welcome to the MLK Program

The Martin Luther King, Jr. (MLK) Program is one of the advising communities within the College of Liberal Arts, and is available to any CLA student who appreciates an environment that embraces and fosters multiculturalism. MLK provides advising services that encompass every major that CLA offers (including pre-professional programs i.e. pre-medicine, pre-dentistry, etc.) and supplies the information and support students need to succeed at the University and gain the most from their CLA education. Keeping in touch with the MLK community helps students stay on top with what's happening in CLA as well as what students need to graduate!

MLK Events & Programs
We offer regular events throughout the academic year.

There is a variety of academic resources that MLK advisers use to help students succeed. We know that campus can be a big place and we can help make it smaller by showing you the different resources out there. Always make sure that you meet with your adviser regularly. Your adviser will have first-hand information and should be your first stop for advising or any advising information.

Multicultural Opportunities
The MLK Program is dedicated to promoting diversity and embraces a learning environment that is multicultural for all students. We will oftentimes partner with other departments and offices, who also serve as resources for our students. There is a wide range of opportunities for learning, volunteering, and participating in multiculturalism.

Research, Internships and Volunteer Opportunities
Getting involved can link directly to your major, minor, career, or personal interests. How will you apply the knowledge and skills you're developing while getting ready for the next steps after graduation? Use a variety of resources to find a meaningful match of opportunities.

Study Abroad Opportunities
Study abroad can work effectively into your major or minor requirements, or bridge to a professional interest area. Attend a First-Step Meeting at the Learning Abroad Center today! Talk to your adviser today and find out more.

Probation & Suspension Guide
You are expected to maintain a cumulative GPA of at least a 2.0 and to earn a term GPA of at least 2.0 each semester. Your records are reviewed each fall and spring semester. If you fail to maintain either a cumulative GPA or a term GPA of at least 2.0, you are placed on academic probation and your adviser is alerted of your need for advice and assistance.
