Campus Plan

The plan considers future VCC needs and aims to enhance the college’s physical environments to support learning, community, and partnerships while responding to the context of the surrounding neighbourhoods.

Vision Statement

Campuses that embody innovation and respond to a changing city and region.


In support of the Campus Plan vision, a series of six objectives were developed. These objectives served as the "backbones" of the plan while the concepts for the campuses emerged.

Campus Indigenization

VCC’s physical campuses will recognize, support, and celebrate past and present Indigenous learners. VCC will engage with Indigenous peoples and communities in meaningful ways, and advance recommendations in learning, campus planning, support services, and reconciliation.

VCC seeks to be a leader in environmental stewardship and, in doing so, provide ethical and forward-thinking learning opportunities for its students. This will be achieved by embracing innovations in energy generation, greenhouse gas reductions, water conservation, food production, waste reduction, social wellbeing, and cultural awareness.

Collaborative Opportunities

As geographic and symbolic doorways to their respective neighbourhoods, VCC’s campuses will serve as visible and tangible centres for collaboration. VCC will prioritize inclusiveness and community by building and maintaining learning-centered relationships both internally among its departments and externally with its diverse community.


Strategic Partnerships

VCC is committed to exploring a wide range of potential strategic partnerships to leverage prevailing land and building assets for the future in the most effective way possible. These strategic partnerships include working with employers, other academic institutions around sectoral collaboration, and with others to explore opportunities to creatively develop land and new buildings.
