University of Louisville

The University of Louisville is a public university in Louisville, Kentucky, a member of the Kentucky state university system. When founded in 1798, it was the first city-owned public university in the United States and one of the first universities chartered west of the Allegheny Mountains.

The university is mandated by the Kentucky General Assembly to be a “Preeminent Metropolitan Research University”. The university enrolls students from 118 of 120 Kentucky counties, all 50 U.S. states, and 116 countries around the world.

The University of Louisville School of Medicine is touted for the first fully self-contained artificial heart transplant surgery[8] as well as the first successful hand transplantation.

The University Hospital is also credited with the first civilian ambulance, the nation’s first accident services, now known as an emergency department (ED), and one of the first blood banks in the US.

Between 1999 and 2006 Louisville was one of the fastest-growing medical research institutions according to National Institutes of Health rankings.

As of 2006, the melanoma clinic ranked third in among public universities in NIH funding, the neurology research program fourth, and the spinal cord research program 10th.

Louisville is also known for its Louisville Cardinals athletics programs. Since 2005 the Cardinals have made appearances in the NCAA Division I men’s basketball Final Four in 2005, 2012, and 2013 (vacated), football Bowl Championship Series Orange Bowl in 2007 (champions) and Sugar Bowl in 2013 (champions), the College Baseball World Series 2007, 2013, 2014, 2017 and 2019, the women’s basketball Final Four in 2009 (runner-up), 2013 (runner-up), and 2018, and the men’s soccer national championship game in 2010.

The Louisville Cardinals Women’s Volleyball program has three-peated as champions of the Big East Tournament (2008, 2009, 2010), and were Atlantic Coast Conference Champions in 2015 and 2017.

Women’s track and field program has won Outdoor Big East titles in 2008, 2009 and 2010 and an Indoor Big East title in 2011.
Founding and early years: 1798–1845

The University of Louisville traces its roots to a charter granted in 1798 by the Kentucky General Assembly to establish a school of higher learning in the newly founded town of Louisville.

It ordered the sale of 6,000 acres (24 km²) of South Central Kentucky land to underwrite construction, joined on April 3, 1798, by eight community leaders who began local fundraising for what was then known as the Jefferson Seminary.

It opened 15 years later 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 ran the first public school in Kentucky in 1829 and is considered Kentucky’s first historian.

Despite the Jefferson Seminary’s early success, pressure from newly established public schools and media critiques of it as “elitist” would force its closure in 1829.

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.

As he had earlier at Lexington’s Transylvania University, Caldwell rapidly led LMI into becoming one of the leading medical schools west of the Allegheny Mountains.

In 1840, the Louisville Collegiate institute, a rival medical school, was established after an LMI faculty dispute. It opened in 1844 on land near the present-day Health sciences campus.

As a public state university: 1970–present
Talk of Louisville 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 the state system. Still, there was opposition to the university becoming public, both from faculty and alumni who feared to lose the small, close-knit feel of the campus and from universities already in the state system who feared funding cuts.

After several years of heated debate, the university joined the state system in 1970, a move largely orchestrated by then Kentucky governor and Louisville alumnus Louie Nunn.

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.

John W. Shumaker was named the university’s president in 1995. Shumaker was a very successful fundraiser, and quickly increased the school’s endowment from $183 to $550 million. He developed the REACH program to encourage retention.

In 1997, he hired athletics director Tom Jurich, who restored the athletics program and raised over $100 million to raze abandoned factories and old parking lots next to campus and replace them with on-campus athletic facilities, which vastly improved the aesthetics of the Belknap Campus.

Academically, Louisville moved closer to parity with the state’s flagship the University of Kentucky as retention rates and research funding increased, and average GPAs and ACT scores were much higher for incoming freshman.
