Ubuntu honors Martin Luther King Jr.

In January 2021, Ubuntu launched a charitable-giving initiative in honour of Martin Luther King Jr. Day to give employees an avenue to serve while the world was still in the throes of the COVID-19 pandemic. Ubuntu invited employees to participate in a project to provide personal protective equipment (PPE) and school supplies to students and teachers in Franklin County, North Carolina. Franklin County was hit hard by the pandemic, and students, teachers, and staff needed supplies as COVID-19 cases were trending upward once again.

I Am Because We Are.

Ubuntu's Mission Statement

The PPE initiative was a huge success. Ubuntu donated over $5,000 in PPE to Franklin County schools. Students and teachers expressed their gratitude through letters. The principal of the school wrote how she was “grateful for community partners” like Ellucian who support the success of students and teachers.
