SOUTH KINGSTOWN - The University of Rhode Island is set to celebrate the opening of its newly completed $75 million building for the College of Pharmacy on Tuesday, Sept. 4 at 11 a.m.

URI President David M. Dooley will be joined by Rep. James R. Langevin and URI donors, officials, faculty and students to celebrate the formal ribbon-cutting ceremony of the building.

“The college is a critical part of the knowledge-based economic future of the Ocean State and with this facility we will be able to develop partnerships with leading biomedical companies, secure more research funding to reinvest into Rhode Island’s economy, attract startup biotech companies to the state, and allow our young people to pursue exciting and gratifying careers right here in our beautiful state,” said Dooley in prepared remarks.

The five-story, 144,000-square-foot building is the largest academic building on the university’s South Kingstown campus and houses sophisticated research and teaching laboratories.

According to the university, more than 380 Rhode Islanders were employed on the project.

The day’s activities will begin with a speaking program in the Chafee Social Science Center, Room 271 followed by a ribbon cutting outside the main entrance on the west side of the new building.
