The Nanaimo Campus Master Plan:

The Nanaimo Campus Master Plan was developed with input from a wide range of constituents. This input helped VIU create a vision to build our campus in ways that best support the needs of students, employees, the surrounding community, and visitors to the campus.

To ensure that the planning process encompassed the broadest input, a project steering committee was established with representation from all campus constituencies.  The committee provided advice and input to the planning consultants, and seek input from the VIU community.
