Nominations: 2013 Martin Luther King Jr. Award

October 1, 2013

Dear Colleagues:

The Johns Hopkins Institutions are pleased to announce the call for nominations for the 2013 Martin Luther King, Jr. Award for Community Service, which recognizes outstanding commitments to volunteer community service by members of the Johns Hopkins Institutions.  All faculty, staff, employees, graduate students and retirees are eligible to be nominated to receive this award. 

Community Service awards will be presented at the Martin Luther King, Jr. Commemoration Celebration in January, 2014 to those individuals who demonstrate the same spirit of volunteerism, citizenship and activism that characterized the life of Dr. King, who personified a deep faith in what people working together could accomplish for themselves and their nation.  This will mark our 20th annual presentation of community service awards and the 32nd commemorative celebration. The celebration features nationally-known keynote speakers whose work honors and supports the memory of Dr. King.

Today, as our nation faces more complex and growing social problems, we want to recognize those who are committed to building stronger and healthier communities.  Please take a moment to reflect on the community outreach efforts currently performed by an individual in your department and share with us the accomplishments and contributions of someone you know who consciously and devotedly helps others.

To submit a nomination for the 2013 Martin Luther King, Jr. Award for Community Service, please visit The deadline for submissions is November 11, 2013.

If you have any questions please contact Jennifer Remillard at or 443-997-3769.
