UofL is committed to creating a challenging intellectual climate enhanced by our many human differences, and this serves as the objective of the programs and services provided by the Cultural Center. More specifically, the Cultural Center creates educational opportunities for members of the university community to critically think about their beliefs, values and assumptions as it relates to culture. We would welcome your support during UofL's Day of Giving. Your gift can support:
Porter Scholarship:The Porter Scholarship program is the largest scholarship organization at the University of Louisville. Named after a former university trustee, the late Woodford R. Porter Sr., the scholarship program was created in 1984. The mission and purpose are to provide academic, personal and professional support and to all recipients of this scholarship. Areas of support are based on the four pillars of promise which include scholarship, leadership, service and heritage.
African American Alumni Council:
The council seeks to strengthen the bond between the university and the African American community; create and promote community service opportunities; help advocate for and mentor students; and work collaboratively to develop networking and engagement opportunities. Your support will help the Council offer unique programming that helps us achieve our goals and promote diversity and inclusion initiatives for all UofL students, faculty, staff, and alumni. You may also choose to support the AAAC Scholarship.
REACH Latino Peer Mentor Program: Your gift to the Latino Success Fund assists our peer mentoring services specifically aimed at the Latino student population at UofL. HLI Ambassadors serve as both student leaders within the Cultural Center as well as peer mentors in the REACH Ambassador program. This pilot program will allow HLI Ambassadors to serve all incoming first-year, first-time degree seeking freshmen and transfer students from Hispanic/Latino backgrounds. The goal is to continue this collaborative program in order to ensure the success and retention of this specific student demographic.
Al Dia en America Endowed Scholarship Fund: Established by Jose Neil Donis, publisher of Al Dia en America, the Al Dia en America Endowed Scholarship will be awarded to subsidize the cost of higher education at the University of Louisville for students with strong financial need, with preference given to students who self-identify as Hispanic or Latino. The amount of the scholarship will be determined by funds available at the time the awards are granted, and will be managed by the Assistant Director of the Hispanic/Latino Initiatives Office (HLI) at the University of Louisville Cultural Center.
Cultural Center Programming:Your gift to the Cultural Center Fund provides valuable resources that allow the center to accomplish its mission to create a challenging intellectual climate that is enhanced by our human differences, specifically through inclusive multicultural programming to enhance the experience of UofL's diverse population.
