UPDATE

The Washington Post reports that over 800 faculty, students, and Charlottesville residents were in attendance. The Post also reports that the remarks of the University of Virginia’s Provost, John Simon, were heralded with “thunderous applause” by those gathered.

“I now find myself at a defining moment, confronting and questioning whether honor, integrity and trust are truly the foundational pillars of life at the University of Virginia,” he said, remarks that struck to the heart of the university’s fabled honor code.
