Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell announced Friday that he has re-appointed University of Virginia Rector Helen E. Dragas to the university's Board of Visitors.
In an abrupt about-face, the University of Virginia's governing body voted on Tuesday to reinstate ousted President Teresa Sullivan, who was forced to resign earlier this month.
The University of Virginia's governing body is scheduled to convene Tuesday to decide whether to reinstate ousted President Teresa Sullivan, potentially ending a chaotic two weeks that has torn the fabric of the historic university's community asunder.
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.
Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell is looking to rebound from arguably his worst week since taking office after facing criticism on a wide range of issues both from outside and within his party.
The University of Virginia's governing board has scheduled a meeting Tuesday to consider reinstating President Teresa A. Sullivan, who was forced to resign earlier this month.
Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell said Tuesday the sudden, forced resignation of the University of Virginia's president should have been handled better. He declined to say whether he would reappoint the university official said to be behind the ouster.
The University of Virginia's first female president announced Sunday that she would be stepping down from her office, effective Aug. 15.
"Each of us on the Board looks forward to working in a constructive and inclusive way with President Sullivan, along with students, faculty, alumni, and staff on tackling the broad challenges that face the University," she said.
Ms. Dragas added that the two have always respected one another on a personal level.
