Group meeting


The University of Louisville’s Young and Emerging Professionals (YEP) employee resource group was founded in 2019.


To support the personal and professional development of "young" professionals (ages 40 or below) or "emerging" professionals who are new to UofL or new to a particular career path, etc. Membership is free and open to all UofL employees.

Note: These definitions are not meant to be exclusive. If you identify with either of these terms, you are welcome to join us!
