Virginia Tech will hold a Town Hall Meeting Tuesday, March 14, from 6:30-8 p.m. in the Burruss Hall Auditorium, 800 Drillfield Dr. to discuss the 2017 Master Plan for Virginia Tech. The Virginia Tech community and the general public are invited to attend.
The meeting will begin with a short presentation by Sasaki Associates, after which participants will break up into smaller groups for focused discussions. Virginia Tech has hired Sasaki Associates as a consultant in developing the Master Plan.
The 2017 Master Plan for Virginia Tech will focus on infrastructure, quality of space, space analysis and land use, and student life initiatives taking into account anticipated enrollment growth.
To create physical spaces that allow for students and faculty to learn and grow in these ways, university leaders are developing a new Master Plan that will shape how the university’s Blacksburg, Roanoke, and National Capital Region campuses in the coming years.
It will incorporate strategies for the creative and efficient use of existing space, as well as the development of new facilities that encourage interdisciplinary collaboration and partnerships and new ideas for housing an increasingly transient population of students, faculty, and researchers.
