Campus-wide Listening Sessions
Let’s Talk!! The Commission on Diversity and Racial Equity (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 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.
