Nominations are due by October 30.

Please nominate them for a 2021 MLK Peace Award! (Nominations due October 30.)  MSU Denver students, faculty/staff, and Denver community members are eligible for nomination, and awards are granted based on the following criteria: community activism, advocacy, and depth of involvement.

For 30 years, the campus community has come together in January to celebrate the life, legacy, and ideals of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. at our annual Peace Breakfast. The highlight of the gathering is an awards ceremony that acknowledges and celebrates individuals who keep Dr. King’s spirit and dream alive through their contributions to peace, justice, diversity, equality, and social change.
