Overview and metadata sections

The Martin Luther King, Jr. School of Social Change was originally named the Upland Institute of Crozer Foundation. It was organized in 1964 to help meet the urgent need for trained leadership required by social welfare, government agencies, social action, peace and civil rights groups. Its name was changed in May 1968, and it was rededicated to the ideals of the assassinated civil rights leader, Martin Luther King, Jr., who graduated from Crozer Theological Seminary, Chester, PA.

The Swarthmore College Peace Collection is not the official repository for the records of this organization.
