CODRE will be hosting Campus-wide Listening Sessions in the SPRING semester (for the months of February, March & April).

These listening sessions will be 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. 

Our next session is directed toward students; however, all are welcome April 6, 4 to 6 p.m., MS Teams.  This month we have two topics Student voices, is anyone listening?” and “Paying for School - Obstacles, Barriers and Resources” The session will be facilitated by two UofL student leaders. CODRE wants to know how can the university empower and support its students to share their voice regarding university discussions and campus related issues? We also want to hear what you want to know about paying for school. We plan to have what financial resources are provided and available for students to complete their education at UofL.

We look forward to hearing your voices.
