Campus Engagement

DECC Student Council

As we face these trying times of despair and hope in the fight for racial justice, UofL’s College of Arts & Sciences recognizes our response has to be rooted in centering student voice and welcoming student agency. The A&S Office of Diversity, Engagement, Culture & Climate stands in solidarity with our students fighting for Black Lives and seeks to make our campus and community a space where students feel safe. We are seeking justice driven students for our newly formed A&S Student Advisory Council for Diversity, Engagement, Culture & Climate. Participants will work alongside the newly created faculty-staff A&S Diversity Committee to ensure we continue to make progressive steps towards ensuring a sense of belonging for all Cardinals. We realize that student time is valuable and intend to make every effort to ensure that students are adequately rewarded for volunteering their gifts and talents to the university. As such, our first task is to develop and propose a plan to compensate students for assisting and enduring in this often traumatizing work.

Community Engagement

The work conducted by our engagement unit builds bridges between the larger community and the university. Our programming often partners with other organizations and includes a broad array of programming topics. Some of our most active partnerships include joint programming with The Kentucky Center for African American Heritage, the Jefferson County Public School system, and the Yearlings Club in West Louisville.

Yearlings Club Series

This series looks at issues, topics, events which have been identified by the community as important and presents forums in which those issues can be presented and examined by the community.

West Louisville Economic Development Forum

The goal of this conference organized by UofL's College of Arts & Sciences is to engage and empower stakeholders who are passionate about rebuilding and sustaining healthy, vibrant, and sustainable communities with information on strategies and resources available to effect positive change in our community.

Louisville Downtown Civil Rights Markers

This project was former dean of the University of Louisville College of Arts and Sciences J. Blaine Hudson's vision to preserve the history, heritage and contributions of African Americans to Louisville's rich history.
