"The community of students, faculty, and staff who gather on campus each year to study, live, and work define the Virginia Tech experience. This community occurs in residence halls, classrooms, laboratories, dining halls, student centers, libraries, and outdoor spaces."
--Mark G. McNamee, former provost
The year is 2035. What should the student experience be like at Virginia Tech?
Former Senior Vice President and Provost Mark G. McNamee posed that question when he commissioned the task force in 2014. Their responsibility was to evaluate the impact of the physical campus on relationships among faculty, staff, and students and then to envision the campus for the future.
The task force, co-chaired by Vice Provost for Undergraduate Academic Affairs Rachel Holloway and Senior Associate Vice President for Student Affairs Frank Shushok, was made up of a broad group of faculty, staff, students, and administrators. They put together the below report that includes cautionary themes as well as imperatives and recommendations.
The Student Experience Task Force would like feedback from the university community on its recommendations. To participate, please fill out this survey:
