The first phase of the Master Plan is the Environmental Survey Phase which includes an assessment of the existing conditions as well as engagement with campus stakeholders to determine the opportunities and challenges on campus. During the Environmental Survey Phase, the Planning Team will tour campus, review, coordinate and synthesize recent and on-going studies to inform the analysis and determine what is relevant for the plan, and meet with the Master Plan governance committees, all of the University deans, Strategic Plan leadership, VCU Health System Leadership, and other Stakeholder groups. One of the concepts being tested in the plan is that of ONE VCU – looking at how to address the feeling that the Monroe Park and MCV Campuses are isolated from one another. That concept will be introduced through these stakeholder and public meetings as participants will be asked “What would help meet the goal of ‘ONE VCU’”?
