UofL Magazine Fall 2007
The University of Louisville has healthy designs on downtown Louisville. The university’s Board of Trustees has approved an ambitious, 20-year master plan designed to take the UofL Health Science Center to the next level. The plan addresses all aspects of the 30-block HSC area—from educating students to research to patient care—and represents another way the university is taking a leadership role in the community.

Second-year law student Becca O’Neill has a unique perspective on issues such as reconciliation, forgiveness and justice in Rwanda, the African nation that was ravaged by genocide in 1994. O’Neill has met hundreds of Rwandese—first working for a human rights organization there in 2004 and this past summer as one of the first two Americans ever to intern at Rwanda’s controversial National Service of Gacaca Courts in Kigali.
