Draft of Campus Master Plan to Be Shared in Series of Public Forums, Meetings
Members of the campus community are invited to attend one of several forums and meetings about the proposed Campus Master Plan that have been scheduled over the next month and a half. The first faculty forum will take place Friday, Sept. 20.
"Over the past eight months, after collecting input from numerous on- and off-campus groups, and analyzing space needs, the Master Plan Steering Committee and many colleagues across campus worked diligently to create a plan that reflects the physical embodiment of Old Dominion University's academic, research, student life and athletic goals and vision over the next 20 years, and beyond," Chief Operating Officer David Harnage announced in an open letter to the ODU community. "I am eager to now share this draft plan, its concepts and the objectives it aims to accomplish in a series of public forums and departmental meetings."
The committee will meet over the course of the next two months with faculty, students, individual colleges, each vice presidential area and the community, Harnage said, adding, "Your input and feedback is very valuable and I encourage you to attend one of these sessions." The schedule of forums is listed below; departmental meeting locations will be communicated directly to the department. Any additional meetings will be announced on the Campus Master Plan website at www.odu.edu/masterplan.
