Presidential Exemplary Multicultural Teaching Award
The U of L Diversity Programming committee of C.O.D.R.E. and the Vice Provost for Diversity and International Affairs would like to announce the selection process for the Presidential Exemplary Multicultural Teaching Award. The intent of this teaching award is to affirm, value, honor and recognize members of the university teaching staff (full- or part-time; undergraduate, graduate and/or profession) who incorporate multicultural and global perspectives into their scholarship, teaching practices, curriculum and research.

This is the eighth year that the University of Louisville has recognized multicultural teaching in a university-wide award.
