Michigan State University could implement a new “fall break” that would give students Election Day off.
Under the proposed break, classes would be canceled on Monday, November 2 and Tuesday, November 3, which is Election Day.
University President Samuel Stanley said in a December newsletter that he is working with Provost Teresa Sullivan on planning a “pilot fall break” for the 2020-2021 academic year.
Auburn University will offer several campus-wide events and service opportunities as part of its Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration Week Jan. 20-24.
The theme for this year’s celebration is “Reclaiming the Dream: A New Vision For the Future.” The week will kick off with a breakfast featuring keynote speaker civil rights activist Bernard Lafayette. The event will take place at 7:30 a.m. on Monday, Jan. 20 at The Hotel at Auburn University and Dixon Conference Center. The cost is $35 per person.
