The University of Virginia is creating a teachable moment from President Teresa A. Sullivan's ouster and reinstatement.
The university plans to offer an oral history course in the fall on the turbulent period that began June 10 with the announcement that Sullivan was resigning. The university's governing board reinstated the popular president on June 26, after large protests on campus and calls for Sullivan's return by deans, faculty, students and alumni.
Students will interview members of the U.Va. community who were involved in the events. Students also will examine contemporary higher education policy issues.
