SACSCOC Inquiries

Governance Inquiry

In June 2012, SACSCOC sent a letter of inquiry to the University regarding the resignation and subsequent reinstatement of President Teresa A. Sullivan. A response was submitted, on behalf of the Board of Visitors, on Sept. 20, 2012, as well as additional information on Nov. 10, 2012. As a result of the inquiry, the University was placed on Warning due to noncompliance with Core Requirement 2.2 (Governing Board) and Comprehensive Standard 3.7.5 (Faculty Role in Governance).

As part of the Warning due to non-compliance with Core Requirement 2.2 (Governance) and Comprehensive Standard 3.7.5 (Faculty Role in Governance), the University was required to submit a Monitoring Report by Aug. 19, 2013. In addition, a special committee visited the University Sept. 16-18, 2013. On Dec. 10, 2013, the SACSCOC Board of Trustees removed the University from Warning. The links below provide information related to the sanction.

The findings of this visiting committee represent a preliminary assessment of the institution at this time; final action on the report rests with the Commission on Colleges.
