Upland — Dr. Joel Olufowote will be the keynote speaker on Monday, Jan. 18, for Taylor University’s annual celebration of the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. federal holiday.

As has been the practice at Taylor for nearly 30 years, administration officials have once again suspended the regular schedule of classes to allow students and faculty to attend the events planned for the day. A significant departure from previous years is that the event will not be open to the public due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Additionally, chapel attendance will be capped at 400 for social distancing purposes.
