The Master Plan Update, in Association with Hanbury Evans Wright Vlattas +Co, provided a comprehensive overview of the University's facilities and a flexible vision for the overall shape and pattern of future development. It also provided guidance to the general character of development within the various campuses and within the districts of those campuses. The master plan process identified areas of programmatic growth and change and recommended strategies to respond to the issues. The update is based on the themes and concepts established in the 1996 Master Site Plan. The updated plan also provides greater definition to the quality of the campus environments as they support the community of VCU, as well as greater definition to the desired external image of the university in the wider community of Richmond and the Commonwealth. The scope of the plan includes both the Academic and Medical College of Virginia campuses as well and Virginia Commonwealth University satellite facilities and programs.
