"Intelligence plus character - that is the goal of true education."
-Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
As one of the leading providers of higher education to under-served communities, Chicago
State University continues to produce the next generation of African American leaders,
instilling in it's graduates not only knowledge, but character. In that spirit, leaders
from CSU's administration, faculty and student body came together on Monday to participate
in the PUSH Excel 2014 Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr Scholarship Celebration and Breakfast
at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in downtown Chicago.
CSU President Dr. Wayne D. Watson along with several members of the CSU family joined
with education advocates from throughout Chicago and the nation to honor the legacy
of Dr. King and reaffirm their commitment to his still unfinished agenda.
PUSH Excel is an affiliate of the Rainbow/PUSH Coalition and is one of the leading
education equality advocates in the nation. The organization strives to be a world
leader in promoting educational excellence and equity in funding and allocation of
educational resources so that every child is guaranteed an opportunity to receive
