Accrediting panel warns University of Virginia after failed attempt to oust president

An accrediting panel has placed the University of Virginia on warning following the Board of Visitors' failed attempt to oust the prestigious public school's president this summer.

The Southern Association of Colleges and Schools took action on Tuesday at its annual meeting in Dallas.

In an October letter to the school, the commission said it was examining whether the board acted with integrity in its attempt to remove President Teresa Sullivan. The association also was looking into whether U.Va. met standards for governing boards and the faculty's role in governance.

The university has argued that it fully complied with the principles of accreditation, state law and its own policies.

Sullivan was forced to resign in June, but was reinstated about two weeks later after a campus and community backlash.
