Willimantic, Conn. - Eastern Connecticut State University is accepting nominations for the 2014 Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Distinguished Service Award. Nominees may be a part of the university campus community or from the greater community. Nominations will be accepted through Dec. 17.

The award recognizes members of the campus as well as the community-at-large whose actions demonstrate distinguished service in promoting King's ideals to further the goals of diversity and social equality. Three awards will be given: to a member of the community; a member of the Eastern faculty/staff; and to a member of the Eastern student body.

The awards recognize distinguished service in one or more of three categories: activities that represent a commitment to the goals of an integrated society, including activities beyond one's work obligations; leadership in a program serving the needs of a diverse community, with efforts reflecting an attempt to unify groups and or to increase sensitivity; and planning and implementation of programs to broaden representation of underrepresented groups as students and employees.
 The awards will be presented at 6 p.m. on Feb. 19 in the Paul E. Johnson Sr. Community Conference Room of the J. Eugene Smith Library.  For more information regarding the ceremony or to request a nomination form, please call Kemesha Wilmot at (860) 465-4421 or email
