CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA – Mark Kington, Vice Rector of the University of Virginia’s Board of Visitors has submitted his resignation after the board appointed McIntire School of Commerce dean Carl Zeithaml as interim president. The appointment was necessitated by the forced resignation of Teresa Sullivan.
"In order to better serve this university which I love and respect, and to help bring about new leadership on the Board of Visitors at this critical time, I am resigning my position as vice rector and as a board member effective immediately," Kington wrote to Gov. Bob McDonnell. "I believe that this is the right thing to do and I hope that it will begin a needed healing process at the university."
