Chancellor Daniel Diermeier will deliver his first address to Vanderbilt staff during the inaugural Fall Staff Assembly on Thursday, Oct. 22. The event will be held virtually and open to all university staff.
Diermeier will share an overview of the university’s current progress and strengths, and the key role staff play in the university’s success. Diermeier will also present both individual and group awards to staff who have provided outstanding support as part of the university’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The assembly will begin at 4 p.m.
University Staff Advisory Council President Caroline Johnston will speak during the virtual gathering about USAC’s plans for the year.
As a new tradition, the university will hold two staff assemblies each year—one in the fall and one in the spring—to recognize and celebrate staff. Each assembly will include awards and an update from the chancellor on Vanderbilt’s current initiatives, accomplishments and goals.
All university staff will receive an email invitation with information to register for the event.
All staff are all welcome to attend the live event. For those unable to attend, the assembly will be recorded and shared later on YouTube.
