Tech Creates Norris Hall Committee

September 7, 2007

Virginia Tech has created a committee to determine the long term use of Norris Hall, the site of the majority of the April 16th shootings.

The building now houses faculty offices and research laboratories. But the classrooms on the second floor, where the shootings occurred, remain unused.

The university announced days after the shootings that traditional classes would never be held in the building again. The university has also decided against locating a public memorial in the building.

The committee is expected to make suggestions to Charles Steger, president of Virginia Tech, by December 1st. The 12-member panel is chaired by Provost Mark McNamee and includes faculty, students and staff.

Anyone can submit their proposals at the website below.
