Going Up: Dental School to add five floors

The Tufts University School of Dental Medicine (TUSDM) Vertical Expansion Initiative will add five floors and approximately 95,000 square feet to the school's main campus building at One Kneeland Street in downtown Boston. The $16 million in funds being raised for the initiative plays a critical role in supporting TUSDM's continued leadership in the field of dentistry. As part of the largest philanthropic initiative in the school's history, donations from supporters represent a critical portion of the funds needed to meet the overall costs of the project, the remainder of which will be paid for with cash reserves and other resources.

Anyone who has visited the Kneeland Street campus in recent years knows that the current facility has reached, if not exceeded, the limits of its capacity. Without the expansion, TUSDM's ability to fulfill its mission of compassionate care, and to retain its stature as a global leader, could be seriously compromised. Conversely, providing additional space for outpatient clinical services, teaching, research facilities, classrooms, offices, and meeting rooms will further TUSDM's ability to recruit and retain the world's finest faculty and most promising students, and to serve diverse patient populations.

The initiative offers numerous opportunities for anyone who believes in the school's mission to express support at many giving levels. In addition to accepting gifts of cash, stock, and securities, the campaign includes a number of naming opportunities for those who wish to make a significant and lasting contribution to the initiative.
