Planning for Fall 2020

Message from VCU President Michael Rao

Dear VCU students, faculty and staff,

I am looking forward to getting back together by this Fall. The recent challenges we have faced together have been exceptional historically and extraordinary personally. They have given us strength and focus. Despite feelings of separation and frustration, we have adapted quickly and shown tremendous flexibility in carrying out our mission of education, research, creative innovation and human health. Now, more than ever, we are ready to talk about the next steps in a safe return to campus. It is going to take all of us working together to make this happen.

Please review this message in its entirety for information about the planning thus far for Fall 2020.


Michael Rao, Ph.D.

President, VCU and VCU Health System
