This event is hosted by the Center for Multiculturalism and Inclusivity at the University of Central Missouri, whose overarching mission is to foster diversity, promote inclusivity, and create a supportive environment for students from all backgrounds, 

Students who receive scholarship funds raised through this event will be acknowledged at the Freedom Scholarship Banquet on January 16, 2024. 

Purchase of an Individual ticket or Sponsor Table includes entry into the MLK Freedom Scholarship Banquet in January.  Two events for the price of one!

With your help, we are transforming the lives of UCM students by creating opportunities for them beyond what they imagined possible. Thank you!
