The Salem State University Martin Luther King Jr. Leadership Award is given annually to a Salem State student, alumna/us, faculty member, and staff or administrator for their outstanding and significant contributions to the cause of freedom, justice, peace, and equality. This marks the fourth year that this award will be extended to one of our alumni that have demonstrated the same level of commitment to these causes.
