1887 Society

 Since our humble establishment in 1887, the University of Louisville School of Dentistry has cultivated a rich heritage in dental education and a reputation for clinical excellence.

We are committed to fostering an environment that enables our students and residents to thrive across the dental world and around the corner. Donor involvement at a leadership level is crucial to the long-term success of the mission. As a member of the 1887 Society, your generosity directly impacts the ULSD experience through student financial aid, advancing technological developments, expansion of learning support services and capital improvements to our physical spaces.
