5 Questions for Owen Cooks
Associate Vice Chancellor of Facilities
What is the purpose of a Master Plan?
The campus master plan compliments the WSSU Strategic Plan by charting the orderly growth of the physical campus in support of the Strategic Plan for the University.
How does the campus plan support student success?
Facilities are an enabler of student success. The right environments (indoor and outdoor) in the right locations with the appropriate amenities foster student success.
What projects are underway now and when do you anticipate them being completed?
What is the size of the campus and number of buildings?
The campus has a little over 100 acres and over 40 principal buildings.
Are there plans for increased parking on campus?
Yes. We are wrapping up a study for an approximately 500 car parking deck adjacent to the Cromartie St. entrance to the main campus that will provide additional parking on campus as well as events at K. R. Williams Auditorium.
Thirty Days to Make History with Your Donation
Record-breaking experiences often make history. The first human to travel at the speed of sound, for example, broke a record and made history, as did the first person to run under a four-minute and the first professional baseball player to hit more than 714 homeruns in his career.
Alumni of Winston-Salem State University now have the opportunity to achieve a major milestone and, in doing so, break a record and make history.
The month of June is our last opportunity to receive donations for this fiscal year. The thirty days in June can be a pivotal time in what could be a historical year for alumni giving at WSSU. We need less than 100 supporters to reach a record total of 1300 alumni donors.
All alumni non-donors and those with unfulfilled pledges are encouraged to make their donations now. Help us break a record that we can all be proud of and add to the long list of historical achievements at our alma mater.
| Campus Tours Underway|
"I didn't know about that!" We have been hearing this phrase uttered by community leaders when they find out about the exciting things that are happening at Winston-Salem State University. As a result, a series of campus tours (April - August) is underway for business and community leaders to witness the great things that are happening at Winston-Salem State University.
The campus tours are Presented by the WSSU Foundation and Sponsored by BB&T with support from Krispy Kreme. The tours also provide the opportunity to discuss some of the opportunities and challenges we are encountering as we transform our university.
