CHARLOTTSVILLE, Va. (AP) - The University of Virginia Faculty Senate says an upcoming retreat is an opportunity for the Board of Visitors to help restore trust in the UVA community.
The board's annual retreat is set for Aug. 15 and 16 in Richmond.
The Daily Progress says the Faculty Senate sent a letter to the board last week asking it to take steps at the retreat to help restore trust. These steps include conducting a self-assessment.
President Teresa A. Sullivan's forced resignation on June 10 sparked large-scale protests and online petitions. Sullivan was reinstated June 26.
Rector Helen E. Dragas tells the newspaper that the board shares the Faculty Senate's spirit of reconciliation. She says the faculty's "collective wisdom" will be highly valued as long-term plans are developed for the university.
