The commitment to protecting both the safety and experiences of students, staff, and faculty has been exemplified by the Vanderbilt community’s collaboration efforts coming into the 2021-2022 school year. As of August 2021, more than 94% of Vanderbilt students, staff, and faculty are fully vaccinated against COVID-19, and these on-campus health and safety protocols outline the protections we’re taking to keep one another safe.
At the TFC, we are grateful to say that due to the collective action taken by the Vanderbilt community, we are planning to host in-person events for the Fall 2021 semester.
While this ability to host in-person programming is extremely welcome following the 2020-2021 school year, it is essential that our collaborative efforts to protect one another remain ongoing, and that we give grace should the pandemic require flexibility.
Further, given the precariousness of the COVID-19 pandemic in both our greater local region and globally, Vanderbilt will have special requirements for on-campus visitors for the foreseeable future. Specific details regarding visitor protocol can be found here.
