U. of Virginia Board Extends Sullivan's Contract

November 12, 2012

The University of Virginia board, which this summer ousted President Teresa Sullivan (and then reversed itself amid the resulting outcry), is extending her contract. The university announced Friday that Sullivan's five-year contract, through 2015, had been extended to 2016. Helen E. Dragas, the board chair who was the leader of the effort to get rid of Sullivan, gave the following statement: "The president and her administration have been vigorously addressing many of the vexing questions that face the university and all of higher education – including issues of sustainable funding, academic quality, and new delivery methods. Despite what you may read or hear elsewhere, this board and this administration are working hard on exactly the things that demand our attention. We can’t afford to expend our energies and our time elsewhere. And we are all working together."
