The McConnell-Chao Archives

The U.S. Senator Mitch McConnell and U.S. Secretary of Labor Elaine Chao Archive Exhibit at the University of Louisville provides students and the general public with a dynamic educational experience.

Using a variety of approaches, the exhibit offers insights into the lives of these two leaders and encourages visitors to discuss and reflect on many aspects of the U.S. political system. Among the interactives are: a Citizenship Test that lets visitors test their American history knowledge and two kiosks that offers a chance to critique some of the Senator’s successful campaign ads, guided by lively commentary from two political experts.

Two films reveal more personal sides of the leaders. In Inspired to Lead, the Senator provides an intimate tour of the Senate's colorful history, while Secretary Chao’s Promise of America recounts the inspiring journey her family took from war-torn China to the U.S. and the role the immigrant experience played in her own development and success.
