U.Va. sets panel discussion on June upheaval

Tuesday - 9/4/2012, 12:50pm  ET

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. - A panel discussion is set at the University of Virginia on the short-lived ouster of university President Teresa Sullivan.

The event is set for Sept. 12 at 4:30 p.m.

The Faculty Senate and the Institute of the Humanities and Global Cultures are sponsoring the panel discussion. It's intended to answer faculty members' lingering questions about the Board of Visitors' actions in June. Sullivan was forced to resign, but was reinstated by the board about two weeks later after a campus and community backlash.

The panel discussion is being billed as "The June Events and After: The Future of the University." It's open to the public.
