University of Virginia President Teresa Sullivan sat down to talk to reporters today about her forced resignation and reinstatement from about this time last year.
She had been in office for about 2 years when the Board of Visitors forced her resignation, however she was reinstated shortly afterwards, causing some to wonder, why would she want to come back?
"I would not have come here if this wasn't what I thought would be an important job and one where I could make a difference." says Sullivan.
"The University of Virginia is very important to American higher education and because of that its important to higher education in the whole world. If Virginia doesn't stay here and stay strong we will have really cheated the next generation out of something very important and precious that we need to pass on to them."
President Sullivan adds that there is still more for here to do.
"I came here to do a job, I don't feel like the job is finished, that’s why I still want to do it."
