Updates on the fall semester

We held a pair of town halls in July - one for students, one for faculty - to provide an update on our planning for the fall semester. Thank you to all of you who participated in those productive discussions.

For any of you who missed those events, we have recorded versions of both the faculty town hall and the student town hall for you to view.

The One VCU:Responsible Together website also recently added a Question and Answer section, designed to provide comments on many of the pressing questions we have been receiving.
