UofL Diversity Vision Statement

The University of Louisville strives to foster and sustain an environment of inclusiveness that empowers us all to achieve our highest potential without fear of prejudice or bias. We commit ourselves to building an exemplary educational community that offers a nurturing and challenging intellectual climate, a respect for the spectrum of human diversity, and a genuine understanding of the many differences-including race, ethnicity, gender, socio-economic status, national origin, sexual orientation, disability, and religion-that enrich a vibrant metropolitan research university.

We expect every member of our academic family to embrace the underlying values of this vision and to demonstrate a strong commitment to attracting, retaining, and supporting students, faculty, and staff who reflect the diversity of our larger society.


The College Of Business and Allyship

Allyship: People with privilege and power act in solidarity with a marginalized group. These lifelong practices include:

  • Building relationships
  • Providing requested support
  • Acting based on trust, consistency, and accountability

Allies are seen by those with whom they stand in solidarity as:

  • Actively listening
  • Forming meaningful connections
  • Consistently educating oneself
  • Unlearning and re-evaluating their perspectives
