At its Monday meeting, the board of directors of the University of Louisville Foundation unanimously approved a recommendation supporting the leadership of the university.

The recommendation says: “This Board of Directors supports the basic tenet of accessible collegiate education for all citizens of the Commonwealth of Kentucky and encourages the leadership of the University and its Boards to be key partners in preserving access to higher education, especially for minority and economically-disadvantaged citizens.”
