UVA President Reinstated

   CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) - The University of Virginia's governing board has reinstated President Teresa Sullivan after outcry over her ouster earlier this month.
     The board's 15 members voted unanimously Tuesday to reinstate Sullivan after two weeks of protests on the historic campus founded by Thomas Jefferson. As the board voted, scores of students, faculty and others gathered outside to demonstrate in support of Sullivan. 
     The board shocked campus June 10 when it announced the university's first woman leader would step down Aug. 15 after nearly two years in the position. An interim president named to replace Sullivan said Friday he would wait until the board's vote to continue negotiations to take the job.
     Gov. Bob McDonnell gave the board an ultimatum on Friday: either resolve the controversy on Tuesday or he would replace each of them.
