Mission
There's no doubt the University of Louisville attracts the best and the brightest young minds to its friendly, park-like campus in the heart of Kentucky's largest city. Since 2003, 46 UofL students have won Fulbright awards, more than any other Kentucky university. This success is based in part on the fact that UofL faculty not only are some of the best in their fields, but that they take a personal interest in students and push them to do their best, too. Students at UofL are presented a wide range of study options - more than 170 fields in 11 schools and colleges - with many nationally ranked programs among them. UofL's location is also an asset, giving students many opportunities to apply the critical thinking skills they hone in the classroom to relevant, hands-on experiences in the community. UofL students benefit from superb facilities, including a library system ranked among the top 100 research libraries in North America and one of the nation's top clean rooms, where work in bioengineering, nanotechnology and other high-demand fields occurs. UofL is committed to building a nurturing and challenging intellectual climate, a respect for diversity and a genuine understanding of how diversity enriches a vibrant metropolitan research university. This includes international experience, too. One of the university's goals is to give every arts and sciences student the chance to study abroad at least once during his or her undergraduate career. The university is also one of the fastest-growing research institutions in the nation, yielding many milestone discoveries. Among other things, UofL faculty conducted the world's first successful implantation of a fully implantable artificial heart, developed the world's first effective cervical cancer vaccine and completed the nation's first successful hand transplant. Another factor that makes UofL stand out is community service. The university's curricular engagement, outreach and partnerships recently earned it a Carnegie Community Engagement ranking, a designation held by fewer than 200 institutions nationwide. In one year alone, UofL students, faculty and staff contributed more than $25.1 million to charitable organizations through volunteerism and direct donations. Among the university's many outreach programs is the Signature Partnership, working with community organizations and businesses to improve the social, cultural, educational, health care and economic development services in a historically underserved area of Louisville. UofL was environmentally minded long before "green" became a buzzword, co-founding the Partnership for a Green City several years ago with the city and public school system to team up on reducing waste, increasing energy efficiency and improving the health and education of area children. UofL is a major player in the downtown arts scene, too, helping bring fine arts programming to Louisville to create a more vibrant city center. The Cressman Center for the Visual Arts is just one result of this effort. It features a glass hot shop, coldworking, metal and woodworking studios and three galleries open daily to the public. But the greatest way in which UofL is making its mark is through the contributions its students make to society. They graduate to become valuable citizens such as current Republican Leader and US Sen. Mitch McConnell; US senator and recent presidential candidate Christopher Dodd; Sirius/XM Radio personality Bob Edwards; best-selling author Sue Grafton; and Sharon Darling, founder and president of the National Center for Family Literacy. They truly help demonstrate that UofL's slogan "It's Happening Here" isn't just a marketing tagline - it's a way of life.
