We look forward to welcoming you back to Vanderbilt as we plan to resume on-campus, in-person classes for the fall 2020 semester.

The health and safety of our Vanderbilt community are our highest priority. Plans for the fall have been developed in close consultation with experts at Vanderbilt University Medical Center and our School of Nursing as well as national, state and local public health officials. The success of this approach will require a joint effort from every member of our community as we work together as One Vanderbilt.

Vanderbilt Return to Campus protocols were developed based on Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), American College Health Association (ACHA), Tennessee Department of Health, School of Nursing and VUMC guidance and input.

For those on campus this summer as part of ramp-up activities, all protocols outlined on this site apply.
