Vancouver Community College is developing a Campus Master Plan which will set forth a long-term vision for the future of the Broadway and Downtown Campuses. We want to hear your ideas for the future of VCC's campuses
What we learn in the next few months will help to inform the development of a Vision, a series of Principles and a set of Design Strategies that will become the backbone of the Campus Master Plan.
The Campus Master Plan is a long-term policy document about the physical environment that supports development and partnerships on campus, keeping in step with the College's strategic priorities. The plan guides decision making that influences the functioning of the campuses and the campus experience for the next 20-25 years.
The plan's development will occur in four phases. During this time, Canadian design firm DIALOG and its consulting partners will make regular visits to the VCC campuses to conduct research and meet with stakeholders. There may be some overlap of the phases in order to achieve thorough consultation. The diagram below depicts the planning process and the anticipated dates for each phase. Ongoing public consultation is expected throughout all phases.
