The Becker College community—all students, faculty, and staff—joined Campus Activities and the Student Government Association in commemorating 9/11 Day, on uesday, September 11, by participating in the nationwide 9/11 Day “I will” campaign.

In 2011, for the 10-year anniversary of the 9/11 the terrorist attacks on America, a record 33 million Americans, and many others from 165 nations, joined together to pay tribute by engaging in charitable service, making 9/11 the single largest day of charitable activity in United States history. This year, across the nation and around the world, the “I will” campaign urges people to create statements of positive actions and good deeds we can perform as a way of remembrance.

The event kicked off at noon in the dining halls on the Leicester and Worcester campuses with a short “I will” video and an introduction from members of the Student Government Association. Participants–including Becker College President Robert E. Johnson, Ph.D., wrote an “I will” statement on canvases which will later be put on exhibit as the College’s tribute to the day of remembrance and its commitment to educating socially responsible global citizens.
