Master Plan

In 2014 the University’s Board of Visitors approved an update to the 2004 Master Site Plan to bring it into alignment with the refocused “Quest for Distinction” Strategic Plan. The Strategic Plan provides a framework for capitalizing on the outstanding assets that form the VCU experience — a commitment to educational quality, an environment that embraces diversity, an evolving research program with substantial increases in extramural funding, pre-eminent academic programs, an engaged community and a growing alumni base.

In November 2016, Virginia Commonwealth University began the conversation about our next strategic plan. Following closely with this effort will be a new Master Site Plan. The University is committed to providing an open, thoughtful, transparent and inclusive master planning process designed to engage the VCU community and our external stakeholders.

It is anticipated that a consultant will be hired in Spring 2017 to assist in the master planning process, which should launch in Summer 2017.
