Ms. Dragas has become the face of an embarrassing situation. Unfortunately, I don't think she can overcome the loss of respect and trust. She should step down.

Dragas is not competent as exhibited in the manner of forcing out Sullivan without due process and transparency. She misrepresented to us all and acted NOT in the tradition of honesty. Intentions that were good do not excuse her behavior. She must be asked to resign to benefit the entire community. We do not trust her. I have a law, education and health care degree from UVA and WILL NEVER GIVE ANOTHER PENNY TO UVA IF DRAGAS STAYS ANY LONGER. EVER. i HAVE CONSIDERED RETURNING MY DEGREES.

The petition says it all. There is far more to this story than we know at this time, and we need, and we have the right, to know.

I am a UVA alum and believe Dragas is a liability to any future Presidents. I do not agree with the way she went about the ousting of Sullivan; it seems transparent, catty, and ultimately beneath our University.

As a resident of Charlottesville and the son of a former UVA Professor, I'm appalled at Rector Dragas's conduct. If Helen Dragas is willing to stoop to such tactics as to oust the President of UVA in secret without any public meeting of any sort, then she utterly unfit for any public office, much less serving as Rector of the board of such a prestigious public university.

UVA needs Dr. Sullivan now more than ever to lead with her integrity, her honesty, her profound insight and depth of understanding, her strong people skills, and her proven track record of validating and working with the UVA family of faculty, staff and alumni.

I'm outraged and astonished by the underhanded actions of Rector Dragas and the conduct of the BOV surrounding the "forced" resignation of President Sullivan and all the ensuing events that have since transpired that have brought shame to UVA and what it stands for. Including initial response or lack there of from this office.

Thanks for adding your voice.
