Statement of Teresa A. Sullivan to the Board of Visitors

June 26, 2012

Madame Rector, Members of the Board:

Thank you for renewing your confidence in me and once again giving me the opportunity to lead the University of Virginia. I want to partner with you in bringing about what is best for the future of the University. I do not ask that we sweep any differences under a rug, but rather that we engage one another in candor and respect. All of us seek only one thing: what is best for our University. I believe that we can continue in this task. We know now that we are joined by thousands of others who care passionately about this institution. I need to have your support. I need for you to reach out to your networks within the Commonwealth and around the world, and to help us move forward together.

I renew to you the pledge I made in 2010 to direct my best energies and talents toward this end, and I am grateful to have this renewed opportunity.
