'Rally Of Honor' Held For Ousted UVA President

A weekend rally is set in support of ousted University of Virginia President Teresa Sullivan.

The so-called "Rally for Honor" is scheduled for 2 p.m. Sunday on the lawn adjacent to the Rotunda on UVA's campus.

It comes two days before the school's Board of Visitors meets to consider reinstating Sullivan.

Students, faculty, university deans and even alumni have rallied in support of Sullivan and have criticized the board's executive committee for their lack of transparency in reaching the unpopular decision.

Late last week, Gov. Bob McDonnell threatened to replace the entire board if it fails to resolve the matter. Hours earlier, University dean Carl Zeithaml, who was appointed as Sullivan's interim replacement, said he won't do anything related to the job until after the board meeting.
