UVa. No Longer Under 'Warning' from Accreditation Commission

Dec. 10, 2013

The University of Virginia is no longer on warning from the group responsible for granting accreditation to the school.

The Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges placed the university on warning in December 2012. The commission said UVa. was not in compliance with a requirement regarding board governance.

It had concluded that a minority of UVa. Board of Visitors members attempted to cast out President Teresa Sullivan and that faculty leaders weren't consulted or alerted to the decision.

The commission's Board of Trustees has voted to remove the warning status from UVa.

On Tuesday, Sullivan released an email to faculty, staff and students to say that the university should be pleased with the outcome of the review.

"While the warning designation did not question the quality of our academic programs or affect our ability to receive financial aid, unblemished accreditation remains an important stamp of approval on the integrity of the institution," said Sullivan in the email.
