We Are Cardinals

At the University of Louisville, we do more than learn. We create. We ignite. We push. We make impacts that make a difference. Here, we unleash students’ potential to fuel their success while elevating society through our research and innovation. We build connections with our city that lead to transformation across the globe. And we do it all together. Because once a Cardinal, forever a Cardinal. Forever connected to a dynamic community driving needed change. Forever committed to helping a better world take flight. Here and beyond.

Our people power our progress. Take, for example, Rawan Saleh, a junior who is speaking up to end racism. In the coming months, we will introduce you to more of the passionate individuals who embody the Cardinal spirit.
