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 we elevate society through research and discovery. We build connections with our city that leads 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.

To learn more about the impacts we’re making, read our stories below. The first Cardinal you will meet is Andrea Behrman, who is putting innovation in motion for spinal cord patients. In the coming months, we will introduce you to more of the passionate individuals featured in our Here & Beyond video.
