NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) — The interim chancellor of Vanderbilt University took to social media on Tuesday to comment on the fall semester amid COVID-19.

Interim Chancellor Susan Wente said that no decision had been made yet regarding the fall semester.

We are considering all possible options, recognizing that there will not be a one-size-fits-all solution across Vanderbilt’s undergraduate, graduate and professional programs, and that our fall semester may look very different than it has at any other time in our history. While we’re navigating much uncertainty, our goal and sincere hope is to hold in-person classes on campus this fall.
