 On Monday, January 20th, the nation remembers Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and his efforts towards securing a better future for all Americans. After 50 years, his famous words "I have a dream" still ring true in the ears of many.

Dartmouth students, faculty, and staff will come together on Monday for the Student Forum on Global Learning, which will be held from 11:30 am to 3:30 pm in Kemeny Hall. The opening address will be delivered by President J. Hanlon '77 in Kemeny 008. Afterwards, 14 different drop-in presentations will occur between Noon and 3 pm followed by the Closing session with Evelyn Ellis of Institutional Diversity and Equity.

The forum provides students with a channel for expression and reflection on cross-cultural experiences, including but not limited to global and domestic internships, fellowships, research, service trips, and study abroad programs. Classes will be canceled, allowing students the opportunity to attend.

Several student presenters have current or past ties with the Rockefeller Center, such as:

  • Karolina Krelinova '14 - MLDP, Rockefeller Global Leadership
  • Earth Chariyawattanarutt '14 - MLDP, Rockefeller-funded Internship
  • Rocio Labrador '15 - MLDP
