What's Your 110?
The MSU Center for Service-Learning and Civic Engagement has partnered with Into the Streets, an MSU student community service organization, to launch the “What’s your 110?” challenge.
“What’s your 110?” is an effort to encourage MSU students, staff and faculty to donate 110 hours of their time to community service within a year. The challenge launched with a Community Partners Fair held on Jan. 20 at the MSU Union.
The fair featured on-site service projects and connected Spartans with community partners. A special film by MSU Libraries, "The Intolerable Burden," was also presented with an introductory talk from professor Jeffrey Wray of the Department of English.
The challenge is a recognition of Martin Luther King Jr. and "Project 60/50," which commemorates the 60th anniversary of Brown v. Board of Education and the 50th anniversary of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. The number of hours, 110, represents the addition of the number of years since the two civil rights milestones (60 + 50 = 110).
