Virginia Tech officials say a committee has chosen three options on how to use the building where most of the April shooting victims were killed.
Student Seung-Hui Cho killed 30 people before committing suicide on the second floor of Norris Hall. The building still houses engineering department offices and laboratories but is no longer used for classrooms.
A 12-member committee of students has come up with the three options chosen by faculty and staff:
- Add videoconferencing, research and lab space to the engineering department.
- Create a center for student engagement and community partnerships.
- Establish a center for violence prevention and peace studies.
The committee said the two latter proposals could be combined. A center for community engagement would encompass the VT Engage
program, a community service project the university launched this
week in honor of the shooting victims.
The committee is scheduled to make recommendations to Tech President Charles Steger by December 1st.
