The Central College Alumni, Donors and Friends Newsletter
MLK Day at Central College was filled with activity and inspiration as students and faculty embraced an alternative day of learning. Bettina Judd, associate professor of gender, women and sexuality studies at the University of Washington, pictured above, gave the keynote address. Faculty held 15 academic sessions covering a variety of topics. Plus, students participated in five service projects. The day of action was orchestrated by Paulina Mena, faculty fellow for diversity and inclusion and associate professor of biology.
