University to hold staff town hall on fall semester operations

Please note: The town hall for staff, originally scheduled for Sept. 16, has been rescheduled for Tuesday, Sept. 21, to avoid a conflict on the original date. We apologize for any confusion and look forward to welcoming you at Tuesday’s town hall.

Vanderbilt University will host a virtual town hall on Tuesday, Sept. 21, at noon CT for staff to hear directly from campus leadership about the university’s 2021 fall semester operations.

Registration is required for the event, which will include a moderated question-and-answer session. Registrants may submit their questions in advance.
