University Governance

Last Updated: September 5, 2012

In an unexpected move on June 10, 2012, the Board of Visitors announced that Teresa A. Sullivan would step down as president of the University of Virginia.

Since that time, the University community has responded passionately with strong opinions on all sides. There have been robust debates about the faculty’s role in University governance, a rally and silent vigil in support of Sullivan, an all-night Board meeting in the Rotunda, and widespread media coverage.

On June 26, the Board of Visitors voted unanimously to reinstate Sullivan to her post.

What follows is a chronological archive of statements, videos, and news coverage, including press releases and email communications from Governor Bob McDonnell, Rector Helen Dragas, President Sullivan, Provost John Simon, the deans of the University’s 11 schools, the Faculty Senate, the Honor Committee, and the Alumni Association.

The statements are organized in reverse chronological order, beginning with the most recent.
