Medical Executive Quits U-Va. Governing Board, Blasts Administration On Way Out

A longtime medical executive is quitting the University of Virginia’s governing board, with a parting blast at the university’s leadership over a decline in research funding and a recent tuition increase.

Edward D. Miller said Monday his resignation from the Board of Visitors will take effect June 30, a year before his term was scheduled to end. Miller, who served 15 years as chief executive of Johns Hopkins Medicine and dean of the renowned Hopkins School of Medicine, said that he believes U-Va. is heading in the wrong direction on key issues and that his expertise was going to waste.
