Keith Cardoza '10

photo of Keith CardozaA Rhode Island native, Keith Cardoza ’10 is an Honors Program participant and an active member of the Multi-Cultural Law Students Association.

“I’ve found RWU Law to be very inclusive,” Keith says. “The school actively cultivates a more diverse viewpoint. For example, I see non-minority students getting up in arms over social and political issues that I would have thought only minorities would care about, and that’s great: there’s a feeling we can work for change together.”

Keith’s strong interest in employment discrimination law landed him a mentorship with RWU Law alum Olayinka Oredugba ’00, an attorney specializing in Equal Employment Opportunity compliance for the City of Providence.
