University of Virginia Governance Investigation Update

In a May 2013 update to its March 2013 report, the investigating committee described recent developments at the University of Virginia.

The Committee on College and University Governance, in a statement presented to the Ninety-ninth Annual Meeting, concurred with the findings and conclusions of the investigating committee. It condemned the deplorable actions of the University of Virginia Board of Visitors under its outgoing rector. The committee sees reason to hope that principles of shared academic governance will prevail under the board’s incoming rector and has asked the AAUP’s local chapter, the AAUP’s Virginia conference, and the national staff to keep it well informed.
