Filed in HBCUs on July 10, 2015
The governing board of the University of System of Maryland recently approved the allocation of $5.7 million to initiate the construction of a new home for the School of Pharmacy and Health Professions at the University of Maryland Eastern Shore. Over the next four years, an additional $51 million is expected to be allocated for the construction of the new building and to equip its classrooms and laboratories.
Juliette B. Bell, president of the University of Maryland Eastern Shore, said that “we’ve made great strides since the regents gave us the go-ahead to offer a pharmacy degree, and having a new building will underscore the board’s commitment to this important professional program.”
The governing board also approved funding for renovating or replacing the university’s library which was built in the late 1960s. That project is not expected to start before 2019.
