Community Partners

The Office of Multicultural Affairs is committed to establishing meaningful relationships with external stakeholders in the Louisville community.  One of the underlying goals of these relationships is to fulfill a foundational objective of institutions of higher learning, which is to create a borderless existence between the university and the local community.  Using this goal as a guide, the Office of Multicultural Affairs has four partnerships with organizations whose missions specifically focused on serving the educational needs of middle school and high school students.  Throughout the academic year, educational programs such as college visits, reading activities and speaking engagements are arranged by the Office of Multicultural Affairs with the respective community organization.  If you need additional information about this initiative, contact Dr. Hannah Clayborne, 502.272.8070,
