Diversity and Inclusion, our Cardinal Principle: a message from President Bendapudi

Diversity and Inclusion, our Cardinal Principle: a message from President Bendapudi

At the University of Louisville, Diversity and Inclusion is one of our core Cardinal Principles.

I believe that in many cases we succeed in helping people survive and thrive, but I am also certain that in numerous cases the same expressions of hate and exclusion that daily impact people of color and vulnerable communities outside the campus affect our Cardinal Family right here in our own backyard.
