Is Time Running Out for Mr. Jefferson's University?

Here's an article in the Washington Post that is sure to inflame the passions of many a Wahoo regarding a review of UVa and the findings that they are slipping as an institution of higher learning.
I have no deep-rooted feelings about it but I wanted to give CW a reason to weigh in on the topic.  Entertaining spread of viewpoints in the comments section there too.

A article posted the other day indicated that the University is more focused on diversity than academic excellence. Perhaps that may be the problem.

Of course one has to question any institution who's school of law granted a degree to Sheila Jackson Lee.

My main comment is that while I detested the manner in which the BOV went about trying to oust the President last year, they likely had good reasons for doing so. I think this report maps out some of their concern, made more important by their perception she was doing little to change it.
