Cultural Center

Cultural Center Banner

The mission of the Cultural Center at the University of Louisville is to help create an inclusive campus climate that is free of bias and hate where students, faculty, staff and alumni work together towards creating positive change in our surrounding community.  Working towards that mission, the Cultural Center offers and supports co-curricular and extra-curricular programs that acknowledge and reflect the experiences of our under-represented populations.  We also provide educational opportunities for the entire campus community that help to examine their individual and group experiences within a culturally diverse society.  The underlying goals of our endeavors are to provide advocacy for our students, celebrate our diverse campus community, and engage each other in social justice issues.
