CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA – After less than two years on the job, University of Virginia president Teresa Sullivan is stepping down, citing “philosophical differences” between herself and the school’s Board of Visitors.  Sullivan’s resignation is effective August 15th.  Sullivan will vacate her position after only two years and two weeks, the shortest tenure of any president in the University’s history.
