Centrally located in the city of Richmond, Virginia, VCU’s unique architecture, natural resources and culture help shape a notably diverse campus community. The ONE VCU Master Plan is the framework designed to support VCU's important mission and aligns VCU’s physical environment with the VCU strategic plan, Quest 2025: Together We Transform, and the VCU Health System strategic plan, Vision by Design. The master plan identifies common goals and provides a shared, evidence-based vision for development to guide physical campus investments. The first master plan in VCU’s history to set a unified vision for all VCU properties, the ONE VCU Master Plan is guided by principles that focus first and foremost on student success and patient experience, but which also place a strong emphasis on mobility, safety, campus unification, synergy among programs, and celebrating VCU’s unique urban setting and rich history.
