Work to begin on new UND medical school
Question of the Day
GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) - The University of North Dakota has broken ground on a new $122 million School of Medicine and Health Sciences building.
The 325,000-square-foot facility northwest of Ralph Engelstad Arena will put all of the medical school’s departments under one roof. Some of the departments have been housed in separate locations on the Grand Forks campus because of a lack of space.
UND President Robert Kelley says the new building will help educate the health care workforce necessary for the health and vibrancy of North Dakota’s growing population.
North Dakota Gov. Jack Dalrymple was among the dignitaries on hand for a groundbreaking ceremony on Thursday.
The state Legislature last year approved money for the project. Construction is expected to wrap up by July 2016.
