Gatton College Reveals Building Design, Breaks Ground

The University of Kentucky's Gatton College of Business and Economics revealed the architectural plans and held a ceremonial groundbreaking for a major expansion and renovation of its facilities on October 11, 2013. UK President Eli Capilouto and Gatton College Dean David W. Blackwell were joined by Governor Steve Beshear, other state officials, major donors, faculty, staff and students in unveiling details of the $65 million project.

The expansion and renovation of the Gatton College is part of UK's overall capital improvement plan (House Bill 7) approved earlier this year by the Kentucky General Assembly and signed into law by Gov. Beshear. No state tax dollars will be used in any of the UK construction projects, which include the Gatton project, a new science building on campus, and improvements to Commonwealth Stadium and UK's football facilities.
