Campus-wide Listening Sessions

Spring/Fall 2021 Campus-wide Listening Sessions

Let’s Talk!! The Commission on Diversity and Racial Equality (CODRE) wants to hear from the UofL Campus Community!

CODRE has hosted Campus-wide Listening Sessions to provide opportunities for students, staff and faculty to engage in discussion on topics relevant diversity, equity, inclusion and anti-racism. 

These listening sessions are held via TEAMS from 11:30 am until 1:30 pm on the first Wednesday of each month.  We encourage participation by all members of the University community.  Each session will focus on a discussion topic; however these sessions are also intended to be opportunities for the campus community to bring topics and issues.  

We look forward to hearing your voices at future listening sessions.

Below are the reports CODRE shared with the president and the executive team 


Session #1: Black and or Latinx: Exploring Racial and Cultural Identity

Session #2: Retention within our non-white communities

Session #3: The Impact of Racism and Discrimination on Mental Health 


Session #4: Returning to Campus During a Pandemic, What is Your New Normal?
