VCU/Monroe Park Fall Festival: Celebrating the Heart of VCU

This project proposed the creation of a unifying comprehensive fall festival tradition for both VCU campuses. The proposal responds to the VCU2020 strategic plan by creating a festival designed to highlight VCU/community partnerships and promote “One VCU”. Theme V of the strategic plan emphasizes “maintain[ing] VCU as a model for university-community partnerships” and “develop[ing] collaborations between businesses, government agencies, [and] communities …” Ideas from this project have been implemented in the recent Monroe Park Festival which was a part of the 40th Anniversary celebration activities.
