Important Programming Update:

Due to new information received regarding the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), effective immediately and until further notice, Vanderbilt University is suspending all university-sponsored non-Athletics events and gatherings, including events sponsored by any registered student organizations, through April 30.

In compliance with this precautionary measure, all programming offered by the Office of Student Leadership will be suspended, including the Vanderbilt Awards for Leadership Excellence (VALE) Awards Ceremony. At this time, our office will continue to review VALE applications as we still plan to recognize student organizations and individuals for their contribution to the Vanderbilt community. Recipients of the awards will still receive the accompanying stipend. Details specific to how student organizations and individuals will be recognized will be communicated to students as soon as they are available.

Any updates regarding Vanderbilt University and COVID-19 can be found at this link. Updates regarding the Office of Student Leadership Development will be posted on our website.
