U.Va. board to reconsider Sullivan’s forced resignation

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WTVR) – The Board of Visitors at the University of Virginia has announced it will reconsider the forced resignation of the university’s president.

The Board of Visitors will hold a special meeting next Tuesday reconsider the reinstatement of ousted U.Va. President Teresa Sullivan.

Word of the meeting comes after protests and the resignation of the board’s vice rector and two deans.

A silent vigil took place outside the Rotunda at the University of Virginia Wednesday to support of the reinstatement of ousted U.Va. President Teresa Sullivan.

Earlier Wednesday, Interim President Carl Zeithaml spoke for the first time about his new position.

“This is a challenging time, but any doubts of passion for UVa, just read my e-mails and listen to my voicemails,” said Zeithaml.
