Louisville Tech Gets New Name, Degree Programs

Louisville Technical Institute has a new name and will expand its facilities and degree programs. The school, part of the Sullivan University system, is now called the Sullivan College of Technology and Design.

University President Glenn Sullivan says the re-branding is part of an effort to reach more prospective students outside the Louisville area.

“The Louisville Tech name just is not going to travel as well,  and that’s really one of the reasons that drove the change, but it really better reflects the change we’re taking in the direction of the college  in a new program we’re starting in heating, ventilation, air conditioning and refrigeration,”  Sullivan said.

Sullivan says the school is also adding a new, environmentally friendly building on its campus at Atkinson Square Drive near Bishop Lane.

The college will also offer a new bachelor’s degree program in Graphic Design.
