So I’m at the beach with my family, lolling about, frolicking in the surf, when I decide to take a look at my trusty Treo, only to find that huge news is breaking back home in Nashville. Big, big news. News that you know, now, and most likely knew before me, since you had probably not abandoned electronic communication for a week. Gordon Gee is returning to Ohio State. The Chancellor’s office will be in the amply capable hands of Provost Nicholas Zeppos, who will serve as interim chancellor starting August 1. The search will take several months and will produce, without a doubt, an exciting result for Vanderbilt. Get all kinds of news, video and audio about all of this on VUCast, which has been managed beautifully this week by my colleagues who have also been working like crazy answering media requests. While I lazed in the sand. Feeling a bit guilty about that. Stay tuned.
