Attempted Outster of UVA President Sullivan

In June 2012, the UVA Board of Visitors announced that, through a mutual agreement, Teresa Sullivan would step down as president of the university.

Allegations emerged that her departure wasn't as sudden as it seemed. Sources said the board of visitors rector and vice rector requested her resignation with no prior board action.

The news of Sullivan's ouster led to an outpouring of support for her and a movement to bring her back. Following weeks of turmoil, the board voted to reinstate Sullivan as UVA's president.
