Interim UVa President Carl Zeithaml sees himself not as a placeholder, but someone who has to take action in the interim role. He said he would not wait until the university appoints a permanent president before moving forward with efforts to move into online education.  “Our competitors have made major moves,” he said. “We all have a commitment to really seriously explore how the university will get into that. This is a big, big issue that all of higher education school is dealing with.”  He said the university simply can’t wait a year before having discussions about how it will enter the space. He said UVa’s process will include broad conversations across the institution, with deans and faculty members, about exactly what the university should do in terms of online education.
