McDonnell Gives Thanks To UVA President

Play associated audio

Gov. Bob McDonnell is extending his gratitude to University of Virginia President Teresa Sullivan for her short tenure.

McDonnell issued his statement less than two hours after UVA's Board of Visitors announced Sullivan's departure Sunday. The governor credited Sullivan with fulfilling her duties with "honor, energy and good stewardship."

McDonnell says under Sullivan's leadership, Virginia added 1,000 new student slots, and recently enacted the lowest yearly tuition increase in over a decade.

Sullivan was inaugurated as the university's first female president in 2010. She and the board cast the decision as mutual. Her resignation is effective Aug. 15.
