President's Report: 2009-10

March 16, 2011

Dear faculty and staff,

Last year was a time of unprecedented change at the University of Virginia. It was also a time of extraordinary accomplishments.

The President's Report is a reflection of much of what transpired in the 2009-2010 academic year -- and the role that each of you has played in maintaining the superior quality of our great institution.

This was John Casteen's final report and it is emblematic of his extraordinary 20-year leadership of his beloved University. The report opens with an excerpt of John's remarks at Final Exercises. I hope you will take a few moments to read them, for while written for members of the Class of 2010, they have meaning for each of us.

To save printing and paper costs and to make it easier for more people to enjoy, we are sending you an electronic version -- -- that will allow you to tour some of our newest buildings, learn about groundbreaking research, read up on student and faculty achievements, and experience changes in how we deliver health care. For those of you interested in the fiscal health of the University, Leonard Sandridge and his team once again give a detailed look at the way we manage our resources, continue to operate efficiently, and live within the budget.

I feel privileged to be a member of this talented and devoted community.

Teresa A. Sullivan
