History

Founding and early years: 1798-1845

The J.B. Speed School of Engineering on the Belknap Campus

The University of Louisville traces its roots back to 1798[15] when the Kentucky General Assembly chartered a school of higher learning in the newly established town of Louisville and ordered the sale of 6,000 acres (24 km²) of South Central Kentucky land to pay for its implementation. On April 3, 1798, eight community leaders began local fund raising for the school, then known as the Jefferson Seminary. It opened 15 years later in 1813 and offered college and high school level courses in a variety of subjects. It was headed by Edward Mann Butler from 1813 to 1816, who later headed the first public school in Kentucky in 1829 and is considered Kentucky's first historian. Despite its early success, pressure from newly established public schools and media critiques of it as "elitist" would force its closure in 1829.[16] UofL is among the first municipally supported colleges in the U.S. Image File history File linksMetadata Picture_1067. ...

Eight years later, in 1837, the Louisville City Council established the Louisville Medical Institute at the urging of renowned physician and medical author Charles Caldwell. After his dismissal from Lexington's Transylvania University, Caldwell would lead the LMI into becoming one of the best medical schools west of the Allegheny Mountains. In 1840, the Louisville Collegiate Institute, a rival medical school, was established after a LMI faculty dispute. It opened in 1844 on land near the present day Health Sciences campus.

History as a private municipal university: 1846-1969

In 1846 the Kentucky legislature combined the Louisville Medical Institute, the Louisville Collegiate Institution, and a newly created law school into the University of Louisville, on a campus just east of Downtown Louisville. The LCI folded soon afterwards. The university would experience rapid growth in the 20th century, adding new schools in the liberal arts (1907), graduate studies (1915), dentistry (1918), engineering (1925), music (1932) and social work (1936).

In 1923, the school purchased what is today the Belknap Campus, where it moved its liberal arts programs and law school, with the medical school remaining at the downtown campus. The school had attempted to purchase a campus donated by the Belknap family in The Highlands area in 1917 (where Bellarmine University is currently located), but the plan was rebuffed after a tax increase to pay for it was voted down. However, the school chose to name the new Eastern Parkway campus after the Belknaps for their efforts.

History as a public university: 1970-present

Image:U of L Historical marker.jpg
Historical marker for the Belknap Campus

Talk of U of L joining the public university system of Kentucky began in the 1960s. As a municipally funded school (meaning funding only came from the city of Louisville), the movement of people to the suburbs of Louisville created budget shortfalls for the school and forced tuition prices to levels unaffordable for most students. At the same time, the school's well established medicine and law schools were seen as assets for state system. Still, there was opposition to U of L becoming public, both from faculty and alumni who feared losing the small, close-knit feel of the campus, and from universities already in the state system who feared funding cuts. After several years of debate, the university joined the state system in 1970, a move largely orchestrated by then Kentucky governor and U of L alumnus Louie Nunn.[17] A university system is a set of multiple affiliated university campuses that are geographically distributed. ...

The first years in the public system were difficult, as enrollment skyrocketed while funding was often insufficient. Several programs were threatened with losing accreditation due to a lack of funding, although schools of nursing (1979) and urban & public affairs (1983) were added. Nursing is a profession focused on assisting individuals, families, and communities in attaining, re-attaining, and maintaining optimal health and functioning. ...

Shumaker era 1995-2002

John Shumaker was named U of L's president in 1995. Shumaker was a very successful fund raiser, and quickly increased the school's endowment from $183 to $550 million. He also developed the REACH program[18] to encourage retention. In 1997, he hired athletics director Tom Jurich, who restored an athletics program facing NCAA violations and Title IX lawsuits. Jurich raised over $100 million to raze abandoned factories and old parking lots adjacent to campus and replace them with state-of-the-art on-campus athletic facilities with beautiful landscaping, which vastly improved the aesthetics of the Belknap Campus.

An important development during the Shumaker years was the state mandate change in 1997. Previously, the school was legally bound to have a large percent of non-traditional students. The new mandate was more vague, and simply stated the school should be "a preeminent urban research university." With the new mandate and a much improved campus, U of L began enrolling more traditional students from outside Jefferson County. In 1990, 73 percent of students were from Jefferson County, by 2005 that number had fallen to 50 percent. In 1995, the school's endowment became the largest in the public system, and in 2000 UofL joined the University of Kentucky as the only public universities to enroll students from every Kentucky county. The University of Kentucky, also referred to as UK, is a public, co-educational university located in Lexington, Kentucky. ...


Ramsey era 2002-present

The school's current and 27th president is James R. Ramsey, the former state budget director. Ramsey has continued the endowment and fund raising growth started by Shumaker, but added more emphasis on improving the aesthetics of the Belknap Campus. To this end, he started a million dollar "campus beautification project" which painted six overpasses on the Belknap Campus with a 'U of L theme' and planted over 500 trees along campus streets, doubled the number of on-campus housing units, brokered a deal with the state to get the outdated I-65 ramps redone, and oversaw the ongoing conversion of several abandoned factories into condominiums. The school's federal research funding has also doubled under Ramsey, and three buildings have been built for nanotechnology and medical research. He is also recognized for being able to keep Tom Jurich as athletic director, with speculation that Jurich would go elsewhere.

The Belknap Research Building, completed in 2005

UofL's growth has created strained relations with the other public schools, especially the University of Kentucky. In 2005, UK officials accused U of L of "mission creep" after president Ramsey met with a Pikeville hospital to discuss opening a lung cancer research center there. UK's VP of Institutional Advancement threatened that "UofL should stay out of Eastern Kentucky."[19] Strong criticism came from The Courier-Journal (Louisville's local daily newspaper and the state's largest), which editorialized that the University of Kentucky was the state's primary research university and that the mission of U of L was more urban in focus.[20] However, public opinion and the media in the rest of state supported the idea of a cooperative research center, which caused UK to soften its stance. Today, a center between the two schools in Pikeville is in the talking stages. Several months later, Somerset U.S. Congressman Hal Rogers requested that a federal disease laboratory be located in Somerset with UofL and UK as its caretakers.

Media

One main criticism of the university is that, despite being in a large city, it has no university-controlled television station and no student-operated radio station. However, U of L does hold a prominent role in the city of Louisville's "Public Radio Partnership" which features three NPR stations under one roof. The school holds one-third of the seats on the Partnership's board of directors. A radio station is an audio (sound) broadcasting service, traditionally broadcast through the air as radio waves (a form of electromagnetic radiation) from a transmitter to an antenna and a thus to a receiving device. ... “NPR” redirects here. ...

University of Louisville - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (3528 words)
The University of Louisville (also known as U of L, Louisville, or "the 'Ville") is a public, state-supported university located in Louisville, Kentucky, USA.
The university would experience rapid growth in the 20th century, adding new schools in the liberal arts (1907), a graduate school (1915), dentistry (1918), engineering (1925), music (1932) and social work (1936).
Strong criticism came from the Courier Journal, which editorialized that the University of Kentucky was the state's primary research university for the state and that the mission of U of L was more urban in focus.
