New Building

The University of Louisville and its J.B. Speed School of Engineering have long led the charge in driving technological advancement and providing students with the education and experience they need to succeed in the real world.

We need your help to expand these efforts and usher the Speed School into its next era. Your donation will support a bold new building that will serve as a nexus of hands-on education, cutting-edge research and student life. This new building will include classrooms, a makerspace, high-tech lab facilities, space for engagement, events and more.

Numerous naming and branding opportunities are available. Together, we can build on UofL’s already strong foundation, driving Kentucky’s innovation economy forward and producing graduates ready to lead industrial growth.
