This September, more than 250 VCU community members attended recent ONE VCU Master Plan open houses to preview a draft of VCU’s master plan. The draft provides the VCU community with a first look at how VCU’s campus may evolve over the next 12-15 years. The draft is organized around six guiding principles to support new strategic plans for VCU and VCU Health.

Notable elements include creating a university welcome center, an academic quad and a new student commons and wellness building on the Monroe Park Campus, and consolidating adult outpatient clinics at VCU Health.
A third open house — canceled due to severe weather in Richmond on Sept. 17 — has been rescheduled for October 4.

The planning team is gathering feedback from these public sessions as well as the ONE VCU Master Plan website, now through the end of October. In addition, the team is scheduling meetings with interested stakeholder groups. The master planning process is scheduled to wrap-up in December with adoption by the Board of Visitors.
