After years of hard work and planning, Concordia University Wisconsin’s (CUW) new School of Pharmacy building will be officially dedicated on Friday, September 16. The ceremonial event will include an Open House from 2 to 4:30 p.m., in which the public is invited, followed by a dinner and reception.
The $12 million building features state-of-the art classrooms and laboratories and now houses two classes of pharmacy students. The second class of 85 students began the program last month, joining the initial class of 71 students who began their studies last fall. When full, the school will contain four classes and nearly 400 pharmacy students in the coming years.
“Although very proud of our state-of-the-art pharmacy building, this School of Pharmacy will have its greatest impact on the lives of Wisconsin residents by preparing a new generation of pharmacists who will play an expanded role in healthcare delivery, beyond what has traditionally been the pharmacist’s role over the years,” says Curt Gielow, executive director of the School.
A study last year, requested by CUW’s School of Pharmacy, found the economic impact to the area from the School to exceed $9 million per year.
