CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) - The University of Virginia's Board of Visitors is ready to start considering candidates for interim president.
The board plans to meet Monday in closed session in Charlottesville.
Before the meeting, the board is scheduled to gather with leaders of the Faculty Senate.
President Teresa Sullivan has agreed to step down Aug. 15, two years after taking over.
Last week Faculty Senate leaders approved a resolution expressing strong support for Sullivan and a lack of confidence in Rector Helen Dragas, Vice Rector Mark J. Kington and the Board of Visitors.
During the Board of Visitors' closed meeting on the candidates in the Rotunda, the Faculty Senate plans to hold a silent gathering nearby in support of Sullivan.
