Concordia to break ground in May for School of Pharmacy building

Concordia University Wisconsin, located in Mequon, will have a groundbreaking ceremony on May 14 to celebrate the start of construction of its 57,000-square-foot School of Pharmacy building. Construction is expected to be completed for the 2011 fall semester.

Concordia recently received another anonymous $1 million donation for the School of Pharmacy. The donation puts the college’s fundraising campaign at more than $8 million.
The total cost of the School of Pharmacy project is estimated at $12 million to $15 million.
“We are thrilled at the momentum of support that continues throughout the community for the school,” said Curt Gielow, executive dean of the Concordia School of Pharmacy. Concordia is in the process of getting its new School of Pharmacy accredited. Full accreditation will only occur after the first class of students graduate in 2014.
Concordia’s School of Pharmacy will only be the second in the state. The other is at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Nationally, there are just over 100 accredited pharmacy schools.
