Unity Breakfast Event Background

Main page content

The MLK Day Unity Breakfast was created in 2006-2007 with support from the Student Activities Board and the Chancellor’s Office. With funding from these offices, the Black Student Union worked with UW Tacoma officers to plan and implement the first MLK Day campus event. The first event was successful and in subsequent years, the event has grown to become an iconic community event. Each year the campus has strengthened the collaborative process for commemorating Martin Luther King Jr. Day.

This event is planned annually by committee.
