Preclinical Laboratory Renovation Campaign
The LSU School of Dentistry continues to fundraise for the renovation of the student preclinical laboratories on the 7th floor of the E.E.Jeansonne Clinic Building. The learning that takes place in the labs is foundational to clinical practice as students learn to perfect their hand skills under the watchful eyes of faculty prior to treating actual patients.
The labs had not been renovated since they were built in 1972. Most of the fixtures and equipment were beyond repair, and lacked computers, A/V equipment, monitors and digital equipment. Nearly $3.2 million has been contributed by alumni, friends, organizations and corporations, and an additional $4.2 million was approved during this legislative session as a capital outlay project.

There are many naming opportunities still available and it is our hope that more contributors will step forward in support of the project. Naming opportunities begin at $10,000, however any gift at any level is very much appreciated.
Of the remaining $1.96 million fundraising goal, approximately $500,000 will be placed in an expendable account and the remainder will be directed to the Student Preclinical Laboratories Endowed Fund. The endowment will remain untouched and the interest of approximately $55,000 annually will be used to repair and sustain state-of-the-art equipment in the lab.
For information about donations by stock or through vehicles such as IRAs and trusts, please contact Joanne Courville at (504) 941-8367 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Again, we appreciate your generous support. You can also visit here for more information.
