Mission of the Martin Luther King Committee

"Nonviolence seeks to defeat injustice, not people"

The Martin Luther King Jr. Committee was established in 1987 at Creighton University. The committee's mission is to raise awareness and promote the values of Martin Luther King within the context of Creighton University's commitment to social justice, diversity and inclusion.

That commitment reinforces the values that King's life reinforced--including the inalienable worth of each individual, the spirit of service, fostering compassionate and inclusive behaviors and embracing the diversity in our world.

Each year the Martin Luther King Committee at Creighton University sponsors a series of events on campus to promote its mission.
