VIA Sherman Dorn: Lessons of Sullivan’s ReinstatementPosted: June 27, 2012
It’s a thoughtful postmortem, with a good discussion of how the UVA debacle was solved locally, through the passion and commitment of alumni, students, and faculty, even if the implications are national.
Congratulations to the University of Virginia, which restored some hope to higher education today with the reinstatement of Teresa Sullivan as president. In turn, I hope people will understand how local these events were, despite being interpreted as a synecdoche of higher education . . . .
We’ll see how this plays out in other public universities over the next few years.
