The newly formed Human Rights Club at Mid Michigan Community College is planning two January events.
On Jan. 18, Dr. Maureen Eke, Central Michigan University, will lead a lecture and discussion that celebrates the significance of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and the Civil Rights Movement. Dr. Eke is a decorated scholar and activist who has dedicated her life to valuing diverse voices and human rights. The event is free and open to the public, and will take place at MMCC’s Mt. Pleasant campus in room 234 from 2-4 p.m.
On Jan. 21, a panel of MMCC faculty from various disciplines will consider the topic “Teaching the Global Learner.” The discussion will engage educators in best practices and teaching topics involving civil and human rights, poverty, and the rapidly changing world. This event will take place on MMCC’s Mt. Pleasant campus in room 234 from 11 a.m.- 1 p.m.
