College and University Governance: The University of Virginia Governing Board's Attempt to Remove the President
American Association of University Professors
The report documents a major breakdown in governance at UVA, focusing on the role of the board of visitors and its rector, Helen Dragas, who initiated the effort to force the president's resignation. It finds that the events at the university resulted from "a failure by those charged with institutional oversight to understand the institution over which they presided and to engage with the administration and the faculty in an effort to be well informed." A May 2013 update is included
