There will be 4-5 academic paid for credit internships for 3 free credit hours available for any undergraduate and graduate students at the University beginning in the Spring 2010 semester.

Just recently, as you know, The Carnegie Foundation has affirmed that UofL is an extraordinary model in terms of outreach. So the Arts and Culture Partnerships Initiative is a narrow segment of this much larger sphere that includes the Signature Partnership in West Louisville and the medical outreach that the university does and all the outreach internships programs that happen in the Business School, the Speed School, communication department and so on.
