A class is kicking off at the University of Virginia to study and learn about the crisis brought on by the Board of Visitors forced resignation of President Teresa Sullivan.
The media studies course is called ‘Documenting UVA's Future - the Oral History of the Ouster and Reinstatement.'
Faculty members say those 15 days in UVA's history are a great teaching opportunity.
Walt Heinecke of the Curry School of Education said, "We at UVA follow Jefferson's creed which is ‘follow truth wherever it leads us' and this is an ability this is a chance for us to be able to understand the history of this current event."
Lessons include deep insight about the values of UVA and larger theoretical explorations of policy, governance, and democracy.
