Vanderbilt launches website to commemorate Sesquicentennial celebration

A new website commemorating Vanderbilt’s Sesquicentennial—the 150th anniversary of the university’s founding—celebrates the people, places and programs that make up Vanderbilt’s rich history.

The website features archival and contemporary photographs, stories and other information chronicling Vanderbilt’s past and present, as well as details related to events planned for March 24 and 25 kicking off the university’s yearlong Sesquicentennial celebration.

The Sesquicentennial will provide many opportunities for the Vanderbilt community to gather, reflect and advance the university’s “dare to grow” motto—whether through learning about our history, inspiring philanthropy or finding new ways to radically collaborate and expand our global impact over the next 150 years.

After the launch, content will be added to the new website each month as the Sesquicentennial celebration continues through 2024. Use #VU150 to join the celebration online.
