George Mason University is hosting a two-day planning workshop on March 8th and 9th, 2017, to explore various short and long term visions for the Arlington Campus and its connections to Arlington County and the region. George Mason University students, faculty, staff, and alumni, as well county staff, residents, and businesses, are invited to attend any or all of the scheduled sessions during the two-day workshop.The workshop, facilitated by HDR will look at several aspects of planning, including visibility and branding, transportation, facility needs and design issues, partnership models for funding, academic priorities, economic development, and housing. This type of public input-based planning process previously used at the Fairfax Campus of George Mason University can be a successful way to ensure that multiple viewpoints are heard in planning for the university’s future.
The kinds of overarching questions that will discussed during the workshop are:
1. What is your vision of success for the Arlington Campus? What transformations are needed to achieve that vision?
2. What investments are needed to make the Arlington Campus a center for leadership development?
3. What partnerships are critical to the future success of the Arlington Campus?
