Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium
The University of Louisville
(mascot: the Cardinal) is a public, state-supported university
located in Louisville, Kentucky. It consists of a liberal
arts college, the J. B. Speed School of Engineering, a law
school, a medical school, and several others. Most facilities
are located on the 274-acre Belknap Campus three miles from
downtown Louisville. Enrollment in Fall 2003 was 21,464.
The current president of the University is Dr. James R. Ramsey.
During the nineteenth century most of the professors in the
medical and law schools were drawn from the ranks of local
physicians and attorneys who considered teaching a part-time
vocation. By the 1880s and 1890s, however, the university
felt pressure from educational reformers who not only believed
schools should employ full-time instructors, but who advocated
well-enforced national standards for academic training. In
1907, this trend contributed to the revival of the liberal
arts college, which had been all but forgotten during the
second half of the century. As the university added new programs-the
Graduate School (1915), School of Dentistry (1918), Speed
Scientific School (1925), University College (1928-1982),
Louisville Municipal College for Negroes (1931), School of
Music (1932), and Kent School of Social Work (1936)-conformity
to accreditation guidelines became increasingly important.
Expanded academic programs and the adherence to higher educational
standards led to the appointment of full-time administrators
before America's entry into World War I.
World War II and the postwar era brought major changes to
the University of Louisville. Shortly after the war, a movement
began to close the all-black Louisville Municipal College
and desegregate the university on all levels. This was accomplished
in 1950 and 1951. In 1953 the School of Business was created.
Perhaps the most dramatic development of the postwar period
was the movement of tax-paying citizens from the city to the
suburbs. Because the University of Louisville was municipally
funded, this caused a damaging drain on the school's revenue.
As early as 1965, a governor's task force suggested the possibility
of the university's joining the state system of higher education,
which it did in 1970.
