New VCU School of Dentistry Building Included in VCU Six-Year Capital Plan

On Friday, May 14 the VCU Board of Visitors approved a Six-Year Capital Plan that includes a new School of Dentistry Building. From the plan:

A new School of Dentistry Building will replace an outdated facility and “unlock” the MCV Campus, allowing for growth at the health system and other MCV Campus schools. In addition to supporting clinical productivity, it allows VCU School of Dentistry to maximize care for underserved populations in the Richmond community in need of dental care.

The new building will be a central hub for the MCV campus, and it will feature a bridge system that connects adjacent buildings.
