In its second year, Heidelberg’s Martin Luther King Jr. Day ON! has garnered some regional and local media attention. This year, the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Committee expanded Day ON! programming to a full week of primarily virtual events to make it more accessible to more members of the campus community.

On Monday, reporter Jon Monk of WTOL TV in Toledo interviewed Shaun Gunnell, coordinator of Multicultural Student Affairs, about the events for the week and the value of continuing to pursue Dr. King’s message of peace and justice for all.

When Rachel Ferri and the ‘Berg women’s basketball team takes the court on Jan. 22, it’ll be her first game as a head coach and the first home athletic contest in nearly a year. And it can’t get here soon enough.

The COVID-19 pandemic forced the cancellation of all athletic competition last March, just as spring seasons were getting underway. The fall provided the opportunity for a phased, controlled return to athletic activities with strength and conditioning, smaller group practices and normal practices by the end of the semester.
