Engagement

VCU is fortunate to have community members with a passion for meaningful, sustainable change and we need your input to help guide this work. Engaging and interactive events and activities will be offered at every stage of the planning process to seek the advice of a variety of stakeholders from across the university, health system and local community. These partnerships will enable us to work together to achieve common goals.

ONE VCU Sustainability Plan open houses

Open houses will begin in 2023 to seek feedback from students, faculty, staff and community members. They will be scheduled at key milestones of the timeline to seek feedback on working group recommendations and the initial draft of the ONE VCU Sustainability Plan. We anticipate an open house to be scheduled in starting in spring 2023.

Student internship opportunities

Get involved with the ONE VCU Sustainability Plan through an internship. Sustainability is an interdisciplinary field, and student interns offer a wide range of experiences, knowledge and ideas. VCU Sustainability offers semester- or year-long paid internship opportunities for students studying in all disciplines. Learn more about internship opportunities with VCU Sustainability.

Previous engagement

We engage with the VCU community through presentations to leadership and constituency groups, interviews with stakeholders and subject matter experts, tabling events, open houses, and more. This allows us to share current VCU sustainability initiatives, provide an overview of the ONE VCU Sustainability Plan development process, and explore opportunities for individuals and groups to help shape the final plan.
