Sunway University’s ADTP students celebrated Martin Luther King Day

Sunway University, 8083 miles away from the United States of America, celebrated Martin Luther King (MLK) Day with its American Degree Transfer Program (ADTP) students setting up booths to raise awareness of this day.

MLK Day is an American federal holiday, which falls on the third Monday of January each year, to commemorate the birthday (January 15) of the African-American civil rights activist. He is most well-known for his campaigns to end racial segregation on public transport and for racial equality in the US. This year MLK Day fell on 19 January.

Learn Leadership Reflectively Using the Art Gallery Concept

Tired of essays and reports? Why not participate in an art gallery? 143 students from BSc (Hons) Accounting and Finance, BSc (Hons) Business Management and BSc (Hons) Business Studies did just that when they were assigned with the creative, reflective and experiential project “The Leadership Identity Journey”.

The project, part of their coursework for the Leadership module, was held during the August 2014 semester. The students worked together in small teams to design and create A1 size ‘poster collage quilts’ to demonstrate their understanding of leadership in a hands-on creative way. Their work was then exhibited through an art gallery approach at the Graduate Centre.
