'Capital Development & Strategic Visioning Plan' the topic of the next Lunch & Learn on Nov. 3

WWU Lunch & Learn: Capital Development & Strategic Visioning Plan 
Friday, Nov. 3, from 11 a.m. to Noon in Viking Union 462 A/B 
Open to all Western employees  


The WWU Lunch & Learn series explores content promoting the health and wellbeing of our university people, places, and planet using the Okanagan Charter: An International Charter for Health Promoting Universities and Colleges as our guide. 

Join us this Friday, Nov. 3, to learn about Western’s new Capital Development & Strategic Visioning Plan process with project consultants, NAC Architecture. The Plan will be Western’s guide to improving and modernizing our physical Bellingham campus over the next 10-15 years. It’s anticipated that a large part of the development will be focused on renovating and modernizing existing academic and administrative buildings due to building age and condition.  

In addition to extensive research and analysis about our existing spaces and their uses, NAC Architecture hopes to collect feedback from diverse voices across campus about what is currently working well along with suggestions for improving Western’s built environment to better meet the University’s mission and values, service to our communities and to create a better sense of belonging. 

We hope to see you there so you can share your thoughts on the future of Western’s Bellingham campus.
