The MKTYP considers itself an index of the importance of social justice at Brandeis. The program engages staff, faculty, students, alumni, donors, and other members of the greater campus community to be active advocates with our scholars to promote our motto of Knowledge, Justice, Excellence. In its essence, the MKTYP is a program of people with amazing stories of great resiliency, academic talent, creativity, and service that enriches the university, nation, and world! This year we are celebrating our 50th anniversary as the oldest continuous program of its kind in the country. At this crucial time in our history, we want to commemorate our past and present stories while also looking forward to the future. This workshop will be a visual presentation and address on the MKTYP’s past and present. Then we will open it up to a panel and dialogue about possible ways to ensure MKTYP’s future and legacy at Brandeis. Messages will be framed by its commitment to social justice, the milestones of its 50-year history, and recent/anticipated initiatives.
