Emails Show Rift Between Dragas And Sullivan Won't Die
There's fresh evidence of a stormy relationship between the University of Virginia's Rector and the school's President. The Washington Post has highlighted recent emails between Rector Helen Dragas (pictured center) and President Teresa Sullivan. The emails are from a period shortly after the General Assembly approved the Rector's re-appointment to the Board of Visitors. They show that Dragas gave Sullivan a list of 65 goals that she should accomplish within a brief time frame. Sullivan fired back that she viewed the list as extreme and would have set her up for failure. The board had scheduled a discussion of these goals when it met late last month, but that item was removed from the agenda. Dragas must surrender her Rector's gavel in late June, but her appointment as a board member is slated to last through 2016.
