Vanderbilt's Community Relations team fosters the fulfillment of human potential by supporting organizations, convening stakeholders, and working to bring Vanderbilt's people and resources into the community in service of others.
Featured Community Event:
Vanderbilt and local nonprofit One Generation Away collaborated to distribute food to Nashville-area families experiencing food insecurity . Volunteers gathered in the Fort Negley overflow parking lot in greater Nashville and placed donated food items in families’ vehicles.
“It was a rewarding experience because I was able to see the smiles on people’s faces. I really enjoyed packaging the food and seeing the whole process.”
- Amelia Cephas, Vanderbilt graduate student
