BW Receives Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Community Service Award

Baldwin Wallace University is the recipient of the prestigious Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Community Service Award (Organization-Business category) for its efforts in positively impacting the community in the spirit of the teachings and example of Dr. King. 

The award was presented to the College by The Cleveland Orchestra and the Greater Cleveland Partnership in cooperation with the City of Cleveland. It was given on Jan. 16 at Severance Hall in University Circle during the 31st Annual MLK Celebration Concert held by the Cleveland Orchestra. The award recognizes the many community-based initiatives of BW’s Student Affairs. 

The only winner in its category, BW was selected for the many ways it focuses its mission on the growth, learning, support and acceptance of persons who are of different gender, race, ethnicity, culture and sexual orientation while developing a forum for greater understanding. 

“The judges indicated they were moved by the breadth and depth of the program offerings marshaled by a college our size," said Mila Cooper, director of Community Outreach, who accepted the award on behalf of the College. "This award recognizes the dedication of students, faculty and staff working together to reflect the passion, commitment and vision of Dr. King.”
