CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) - University of Virginia President Teresa A. Sullivan says she has drawn lessons from a failed attempt by the school's governing board to oust her.

 

Sullivan says that she should have communicated more frequently with members of the Board of Visitors besides the rector and vice rector. She says she's looking for ways to talk with board members about their concerns.

 

Sullivan also says she might have made a mistake when she didn't ask for a hearing and a public vote after being told she would be fired. She says she was concerned that a public airing might cause turmoil.

 

But turmoil couldn't be avoided.

 

The June 10 announcement of Sullivan's resignation created an uproar on the Charlottesville campus. She was reinstated June 26.
