It is fitting that Mr. Strine resign. He was part of the initial problem with his questionable meetings with Ms. Dragas. It was clear from the email revelations that he had no respect for the role of his position and that of the President. He gave the appearance that he was manipulative, secretive, and insensitive. He was willing to go behind Dr. Sullivan's back to advance his own agenda, perhaps thinking that he could play a larger role than his position description. I question his ethics.
Let's find administrators and executives who understand executive protocol and the role of educational ethics and how that relates to the business of running a university.

This is great for the institution and for higher education as a whole. He was detrimental to the University, its employees, and the community.

What in the world is going on with all this restructering and changes. I thought alot of money and time went in to choosing a new replacement for Mr.Sandridge.I guess it is hard to replace someone as good as Mr. Sandridge.

You are very perceptive on this subject. The University is a business, the business of education. As an Executive of that business, Sullivan is underperforming for her pay grade. That she dodged the axe last time is simply because the faculty got scared some of the do-nothings among their ranks were next. The Board of Visitors will not make that mistake again... heads will eventually roll.

As usual, Forbes is behind the curve. Now that people are looking harder, watch for accepted enrollment to continue down... Is that something the University should be proud of? Sullivan thinks so, no changes necessary from her.

From your posts on this thread, you appear to be someone who has a personal axe to grind.

UVA is living off their legacy at this point and everyone knows it. The faculty know it, the admin know it. I would say, from my personal experience, 70% of the faculty at this University secretly hate it. This is a common theme, no secret. HUGE disconnect between what is fact and fiction at this school.
whatever

comment to Too bad's statement:
one of the reasons the accepted enrollment goes down is that the number of students who apply continues to increase, hence fewer will be accepted (assuming this is what you meant by accepted enrollment). UVa is a highly sought after place for higher education - and comparatively affordable. The number of students has actually increased in recent years and the financial support for non-wealthy students is higher then at many peer institutions.
Faculty supported Prof. Sullivan not because they are lazy and did not want to be found out - they supported her because she initiated change and introduced a hence unknown element of efficiency in the financial sector of UVa.
heh

Don't you think that applies to most institutions of higher education at this time? That's why Sullivan was appreciated because you need leadership that recognizes the morale problems during tough times.

And Forbes also downgraded Haverford College (PA) radically. Haverford is a prestigious college that has long been among the top private colleges. Why were they downgraded? Because some PA state records erroneously had Haverford's graduation rate at 55 percent when, the year before, it had been 93 percent. Forbes did not even bother to question this huge drop by contacting Haverford to find out why the big decline. They just ran with it.

So, take those Forbes ratings with a deer lick of salt.

Why should Forbes contact the school? This isn't an op-ed about every school, they write a paragraph using their point system and move on to the next.

As much as it pains me to say this, if we keep it up "the" university of va will be located in Harrisonburg. Come on UVA, let's get it together.
