BC-MS--William Carey-Pharmacy School/137
William Carey will offer school of pharmacy in Biloxi
BILOXI, Miss. (AP) — William Carey University plans to open a school of pharmacy at its campus in Biloxi.
The school would be the second pharmacy program in the state. Ole Miss has a pharmacy school on its Oxford campus.
William Carey President Tommy King said Friday the pharmacy school is a dream come true for the university. He said it makes sense on the Coast.
The Sun Herald reports (http://bit.ly/1UfnGKi) the university has an ambitious start date for the school -- fall 2018.
King says the school has $3.2 million for the startup but will need roughly $600,000 more, mainly to pay the salaries of teachers it has recruited.
School officials are considering putting it on the southeast side of the administration building.
