Members of the Virginia Commonwealth University community are invited to attend an upcoming open house to review a draft of the university’s “ONE VCU” master plan.
The plan is being developed to identify and detail the physical framework necessary to support the university’s strategic priorities.
The open house events will be held today and tomorrow:
Monday, September 17th, 11:00 AM – 1:00 PM
Kontos Medical Science Building, 1217 East Marshall Street, Rooms 104 and 105
Monday, September 17th, 5:00 – 7:00 PM
University Student Commons, 907 Floyd Avenue, 1st floor Floyd Avenue Lobby
Tuesday, September 18th, 11:00 AM – 1:00 PM
University Student Commons, 907 Floyd Avenue, Richmond Salons III and IV
The master plan is guided by VCU’s Quest 2025: Together We Transform strategic plan and VCU Health’s Vision by Design strategic plan. The planning process started last fall when VCU and partner Ayers Saint Gross, an architectural, planning and design firm, hosted a series of input sessions. More than 850 students, faculty, staff and community members have identified university needs and shared insights about potential campus improvements.
VCU also has conducted studies regarding the master plan, including a parking and transportation study that resulted in a pilot with the Greater Richmond Transit Company to provide unlimited transit access for VCU and VCU Health System students and employees.
