Vincennes University says it's looking ahead to Fall 2021 with a vote made by the Board of Trustees, allowing full face-to-face instruction and full campus activities to resume beginning with the Fall Semester of 2021.

The VU Board of Trustees voted to resume full in-person learning and activities during a Zoom meeting on Tuesday, Feb. 23.

VU says the vote was made with the goal of offering active and engaging experiences both inside and outside of the classroom for students.

“I know it’s where our students want to be. I know it’s where our faculty and staff want to be. I know we will find a way to do it safely,” VU President Dr. Chuck Johnson said.

The decision to return to full-on in-person learning and activities comes after University officials called off classes for the rest of the semester in November 2020.

University administrators will continue to follow the rules and recommendations of local, state, and national officials, according to VU.

It was another chilly start across the Tri-State; while we only dipped as low as 43° in Evansville, many others across the Tri-State fell into the upper 30s earlier this morning. The cool air didn't linger long however, temperatures quickly reached back into the mid 70s across the region this afternoon - higher pressure camped out over the southeastern quarter of the country will continue to keep the skies above the Tri-State clear while gradually driving temperatures higher over the next few days. Despite our anticipated southerly winds this evening, you may still want to grab a jacket before your head out to dinner; after seeing a temperature near 64° around dinnertime, we'll fall off toward the mid to upper 50s by 10 o'clock. Overnight lows will again dwindle into the mid to low 40s for the majority of the Ohio Valley early Tuesday morning.
