Diversity and Inclusion, our Cardinal Principle


The Kentucky Cancer Program, Brown Cancer Center and Kentucky African Americans Against Cancer are integrated programs based at the University of Louisville that have been working with community partners for over 30 years to address cancer health disparities in the African American community.  A major facet of our integration with the University of Louisville is the fact that each day we strive to uphold the University of Louisville's core Cardinal Principle of Diversity and Inclusion. The University of Louisville is a safe haven for our students, faculty and staff of color and this institution strives to support the many rich and diverse identities held throughout our community at large.   Given the tragic deaths of Ahmaud Arbery, Breona Taylor and George Floyd and the resultant tension building in our own city and across the country, we want our cancer patients of all races to know that we have been and will always be dedicated to saving the lives of cancer patients regardless of race.  Last, we honor and fully support the recent statement on diversity and inclusion issued by our President, Dr. Neeli Bendapudi.
