#HipHopPrez is Coming to EKU

We are pleased to host Dr. Walter Kimbrough, president of Dillard University in New Orleans, on our campus Friday, January 21, 2022, for the Martin Luther King Day Celebration.

This is a great opportunity for our faculty, staff and student body to hear from such a dynamic speaker about the lessons we can take from Dr. King.

I highly encourage our EKU family to attend. Conversations around diversity, equity and inclusion are critically important. For this reason, I want supervisors to make every attempt to allow their employees and students the opportunity to participate in this celebration.

President Kimbrough is known on social media as the #HipHopPrez. He was named one of 25 college presidents to follow on Twitter in 2010 by
