About 1,500 students, alumni and faculty gathered outside the University of Virginia's historic Rotunda Sunday afternoon to support reinstating ousted President Teresa A. Sullivan.
The interim president of the University of Virginia said Friday he is suspending his position pending the potential reinstatement of President Teresa Sullivan at a meeting of the school's governing board set for Tuesday.
The University of Virginia's interim president says he agreed to take the job out of love for the university and the desire to rebuild trust after the Board of Visitors' handling of President Teresa Sullivan's ouster.
The job description of today's university president increasingly resembles that of a CEO, with the molding of young minds and overseeing a community of scholars taking a distinct backseat to balancing the books and raising cash, academic analysts say.
"There is an enormous groundswell of support for Terry Sullivan's reinstatement as our president, and I understand that the board will meet next week to consider this possibility," Carl P. Zeithaml wrote in an e-mail to the campus community. "As a result, I am suspending any further negotiations with the board regarding my status as interim president, as well as any activities associated with this role."
"Trust, one of our institutional core values, has been compromised," he said, adding that trust can't be restored until Sullivan's status is resolved.
