Public Service Programs moves to new location off campus

Spectrum Volume 19 Issue 18 - January 30, 1997

Virginia Tech's Public Service Programs, a division of Outreach Services, has moved to a new location at 1080 South Main Street in Blacksburg. The move was initiated, in part, by ongoing renovations to the Donaldson Brown Hotel and Conference Center, where the department occupied offices in the Alumni Hall portion of the building.

"We're especially pleased about the move because it provides easier access for many of our clients and the off-campus economic-development community," said Doug McAlister, director of public service programs.

The newly constructed building includes office and meeting-room space as well as an expanded work area for the department's computer and technical-support services. McAlister said Public Service Programs is currently under contract with the Virginia Department of Business Assistance, Virginia Tourism Corporation, and the Virginia Economic Development Partnership for emerging technology support.

The relocation follows a similar move by the university's division of continuing education earlier this month. Continuing-education personnel moved from Donaldson Brown to two adjacent buildings on University City Boulevard.

The university mail code for Public Service Programs is 0162. Telephone numbers and e-mail addresses for the staff remain the same.
