Breaking Ground at WMed
The Western Michigan University School of Medicine is preparing to take another large step forward with a groundbreaking ceremony on Friday, October 12—and you're invited.
The groundbreaking will take place on the W.E. Upjohn Campus, located in downtown Kalamazoo. The event will commence renovation and expansion plans for the former 'building 267.'
The event will begin at 11 a.m., with remarks at 11:15, and end around noon. The W.E. Upjohn Campus is located at 300 Portage Street, on the Northwest corner of Lovell and Portage Streets.
About the Building
In December 2011, William U. Parfet, chairman and CEO of MPI Research in Mattawan, Mich., announced the donation of a 330,000 square-foot building to the University for use by the new medical school. The building, widely known as Building 267, was once part of the Upjohn, Pharmacia, and Pfizer downtown campuses.
