“UofL’s faculty, staff and board members should be proud of the role they’ve played in producing such outstanding scholars. It’s further proof that UofL continues to recruit and then graduate incredible students with worldwide ambitions, on par with some Ivy League institutions,” UofL President James Ramsey said.
