Accrediting Panel Places University of Virginia on Warning

Charlottesville, VA - An accrediting panel has placed the University of Virginia on warning.

This after 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 today at its annual meeting in Dallas.

In an October letter to the university, the commission said it was examining whether the board acted with integrity in its attempt to remove President Teresa Sullivan.

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