As they have since 2001, Palm Beach Atlantic University students will make Martin Luther King Day on Monday a “day on, not a day off” by serving the community through the annual MLK Challenge.

Community service is a tradition at Palm Beach Atlantic through a program called Workship, a coined term combining “work” and “worship.”

As part of the graduation requirement, undergraduate students volunteer at least 45 hours each academic year at non-profit agencies, schools and churches.

In the past, projects have ranged from organizing a neighborhood block party to house painting, community clean-ups and preparing meals for the homeless.

Most other University offices will be closed on Monday and classes will not be in session. Students are encouraged to check their syllabi for schedule information.
