Panel Has Questions About Failed UVa Ousting Attempt

October 23, 2012

(AP) An accrediting panel has questions about the University of Virginia stemming from the Board of Visitors' failed attempt to oust President Teresa Sullivan.

The Southern Association of Colleges and Schools is reviewing the events that occurred this summer.

The Daily Progress reports that the association's Commission on Colleges told the university in a recent letter that there's no identified procedure related to removing U.Va.'s president. This creates the possibility of integrity issues.

A statement issued by the university says the Board of Visitors believes U.Va. has fully complied with the principles of accreditation, state law and its own policies.

At a December meeting, the commission's Board of Trustees could place U.Va. on warning or probation, ask for a follow-up report, accept the university's response, or remove its accreditation.
