Three Generations of Master Planning: VCU, presentation to SCUP Philadelphia, PA, 2014
This past March, BCWH in collaboration with Virginia Commonwealth University presented their studies of the Virgnia Commonwealth University master plan to the Society for College and University Planning to identify a model of work that builds the character of the university. Evaluating the 1996, the 2004, and the new 2014 masterplans gave the process a goal to establish VCU as a premier research university. Audience members at the presentation were able to forecast this process and recognize the relationships of master planning to the success of the university via an app that BCWH developed to visualize the planning process.
