Chancellor Nicholas Zeppos and wife Lydia Howarth
Hi All, BlogVU is back! Back with big, big news!

Today the Vanderbilt Board of Trust voted unanimously to select Nicholas S. Zeppos as the university’s eighth chancellor. Zeppos has served as interim chancellor since Aug. 1, 2007, following Gordon Gee’s resignation.

Get the news release, photos, podcast, a bunch of sound bytes, biographical info., and the message from Board of Trust Chairman Martha Ingram to the Vanderbilt community making the announcement. Video to come – check back with VUCast later today for the special report.

Vanderbilt is on spring break this week, so the true celebration will wait until everyone gets back. A special event with the Vanderbilt community welcoming Chancellor Zeppos and his wife Lydia Howarth into their new roles at Vanderbilt is slated for 11 a.m., Monday, March 10 at the Vanderbilt Student Life Center. More details to come on that.

Congratulations Chancellor Zeppos!
