UM to add context to campus sites

The University of Mississippi announced its plans Thursday to add historical context to campus through the addition of plaques at selected sites as well as the potential renaming of Vardaman Hall.

Those plans were born out of recommendations from the Chancellor’s Advisory Committee on History and Context (CACHC), which was created in summer 2016 in an effort by Chancellor Jeffrey Vitter to improve the university’s environment for diversity and inclusion.

The 14-member committee was made up of a range of individuals from the university community.
