Martin Luther King, Jr. Convocation
An annual celebration and memorial of the efforts, spirit and wisdom of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.  Ashland University holds a convocation for the entire campus community.  Our One Church worship experience joins a dynamic speaker as well as students to reinvigorate the dream of Dr. King.  In addition, students and staff also participate in a service project co-sponsored with the Center for Community Service.
