UVA Prez is Back

By a unanimous decision, the Board of Visitors voted to re-instate UVA President Teresa Sullivan yesterday. Clearly, it is in the best interests of the university for everyone to figure out how to bury the hatchet, but I hope, too, that the underlying issue of what is required of a university in our day will not be lost. Sullivan now has an obligation to use her new found fame to address this issue thoughtfully, and not only on the campus in Charlottesville. The thought that a board would think about eliminating classics is simply horrific and we need to ask how we got to such a situation.
