The University of Virginia's Board of Visitors are negotiating extending President Teresa Sullivan's contract.
The contract is scheduled to run through July 2016.
Rector George Keith Martin told the Richmond Times-Dispatch that he's confident a contract extension will be completed before June 30.
Martin said input from students, alumni, faculty and staff have been part of the evaluation process. He says he's pleased with Sullivan's performance.
U.Va. political science professor Larry Sabato said recent events were out of Sullivan's control. They include the discredited Rolling Stone article about sexual violence at U.Va., the slaying of 18-year-old student Hannah Graham, and the high-profile arrest of a student by Virginia Alcoholic Beverage Control officers.
