Historically Black Florida A&M University Gets Approval for a New Satellite Campus to House Its Pharmacy Program

The board of governors of the State University System of Florida has approved the establishment of a satellite campus of historically black Florida A&M University in Crestview. The new campus will be about 150 miles west of the university’s main campus in Tallahassee. The Crestview campus will be home to the university’s new doctor of pharmacy program, which will begin classes in the fall of 2012. By 2016 the university hopes to enroll 60 graduate and 60 undergraduate students at the campus. Eventually, other health-related degree programs may be based on the Crestview campus.

The university’s law school also operates out of a satellite campus in Orlando.
