Institution type: Associate (i.e., short-cycle), Baccalaureate, Doctoral/Research, or Master's:
Institutional control (Public, Private for-profit, or Private non-profit):
A brief description of the institution’s main campus and other aspects of the institutional boundary used to complete this report:
Belknap Campus is considered the school's main campus and is located south of downtown Louisville. At 274 acres, it is home to seven of the 12 academic colleges (and a cast of Auguste Rodin's The Thinker statue). The campus proper also includes the football stadium (Cardinal Stadium), softball stadium (Owsley B. Frazier Cardinal Park), Cardinal Track and Soccer Stadium, Bass-Rudd Tennis Center, and the baseball stadium (Jim Patterson Stadium)
Just east of downtown Louisville, the Health Sciences Center (HSC) is the heart of the Louisville medical center and contains the School of Medicine, School of Nursing, School of Public Health & Information Sciences, and the School of Dentistry. Also on the campus are several specialty hospitals and numerous UofL research buildings and facilities.
The ShelbyHurst Campus is a 230 acre plot of land located in eastern Louisville, on Shelbyville Road near Hurstbourne Parkway. Originally the site of the Kentucky Southern College, UofL acquired the land which now houses business, offices and technology endeavors. The ShelbyHurst Campus is also the location of the Center for Predictive Medicine (a Level 3 biosafety facility) and also the Information Technology Resource Center for the US Department of Homeland Security.
Which of the following features are present on campus and which are included within the institutional boundary?:
|Other professional school with labs and clinics (e.g. dental, nursing, pharmacy, public health, veterinary)||Yes||Yes|
|Farm larger than 5 acres or 2 hectares||No||No|
|Agricultural experiment station larger than 5 acres or 2 hectares||No||No|
The rationale for excluding any features that are present from the institutional boundary:
This assessment covers all buildings and grounds University of Louisville directly controls on all three of its campuses (Belknap, Health Sciences Center, and Shelby). Properties leased by or affiliated with the University of Louisville (including the UofL Hospital) are excluded from this assessment, though the UofL students and employees who use these facilities are not. We exclude these facilities from the report because we do not have direct control over them and cannot get the data required. We do, however, work in collaboration with these facilities managers to enhance sustainability whenever possible.
