Jeffrey Vitter, Senator’s Brother, Top Pick to Lead Ole Miss

Mississippi’s College Board named University of Kansas provost Jeffrey Vitter as its top choice to lead the University of Mississippi, six months after the ouster of the previous chancellor provoked protests on campus and objections from notable alumni.

Vitter, the 59-year-old brother of Republican U.S. Sen. David Vitter of Louisiana, is scheduled to come to campus Oct. 29 to meet with faculty, students, staff and alumni. Barring heavy disapproval by campus groups, trustees are likely to vote later that day to appoint him as the leader of the 24,000-student university.
