TYLER - The University of Texas at Tyler (UT Tyler) has broken ground on W.T. Brookshire Hall, a $26.5 million facility that will house the Ben and Maytee Fisch College of Pharmacy.

The Brookshire Pharmacy Hall will be centrally located on the UT Tyler campus, adjacent to the Robert R. Muntz Library and near the Harvey Lake. It will be three stories and have two primary entrances.

Originally, the university planned to build a 40,000-sf facility, but thanks to Brookshire Grocery Co. donation, the school was able to expand that to 60,000 sf, said UT Tyler President Dr. Rod Mabry.

The new pharmacy school promises to be a major economic driver for the region and provide a workforce for a much-needed area in the state, according to university officials.

The hall, which is slated for completion in May 2015, will be designed to encourage student-faculty interaction and feature classrooms and study areas along with skills labs for hands-on training, according to UT Tyler. It also will include research labs and rooftop terraces.
