This is actually a couple weeks old, I think, but I did not find out about it until today. I searched MGoBlog and didn't see a previous post about it so I thought I would share. I'm sure many of you, like me, remember when Teresa Sullivan left UM as provost to become President of UVA. She has been removed despite opposition from students, faculty, and the larger academic community. The outcry has been so significant there is even talk of reinstating her. Now Virginia Governor McDonnell is threatening to fire the Board that fired her. http://www.politico.com//blogs/burns-haberman/2012/06/mcdonnell-threatens-to-can-uva-board-127076.html
For what it is worth, while I always liked her as a provost and have a pretty low opinion of UVA after this, she DID go to State.
