The University of Saint Francis plans to mark the 50th anniversary of Martin Luther King Jr. speaking in Fort Wayne by examining the future of education.

"The Future of Education-Connecting to Careers, Educating for Peace" at 4:30 p.m. June 5 in the USF Performing Arts Center in downtown Fort Wayne will present a long-range view of education to coincide with the 50th anniversary of King's speech on social justice at the historic Scottish Rite, now the USF Performing Arts Center.

University officials expect a presentation by keynote speaker Glenda Ritz, Indiana Superintendent of Public Instruction, to be a highlight, and a panel of education experts at all levels will also examine the relationship between careers and the instruction required.

Session one, 4:30-6:45 p.m. will include the address by Ritz, followed by the panel discussion. Session two 7:15-9 p.m. will offer a roundtable with educators and others on using education to reduce community violence. A complimentary boxed meal will be provided to registrants for the second session.

Registration is required for both sessions.
