Officials say construction will begin next spring at St. Norbert College in De Pere to accommodate Medical College education and research. The Green Bay Press-Gazette (http://gbpg.net/Q5tUjJ ) says St. Norbert offered to incorporate the medical school into a science building expansion that's already on the books. A $41 million fund-raising effort is under way.
