A group dubbed the “Abolish IHL Coalition” (Institution of Higher Learning) released a list of demands Friday morning regarding the hiring of the newly selected chancellor, Glenn Boyce, for the University of Mississippi.

The list comes in the midst of severe outrage from certain members of the university community including faculty, staff and students.

During Oct. 4’s announcement of Boyce being selected as chancellor, protestors aligned the ballroom of The Inn at Ole Miss condemning the IHL’s selection and stalled the formal announcement.

The newly formed organization continued its effort Tuesday night during the Faculty Senate meeting protesting quietly in the back of the auditorium of the Thad Cochran Research Center holding various signs which included “No Confidence.”

Now, in effort to continue its movement to gain transparency from the IHL, the “Abolish IHL Coalition” published these demands:

The list of demands comes after the Faculty Senate voted 44 to 2 passing a resolution demanding clarity from the IHL regarding Boyce being selected as chancellor.

Th United Campus Workers of Mississippi (UCW), which is barely a year old, joined the “Abolish IHL Coalition” in solidarity also demanding Boyce resign from the chancellor position.

The UCW’s statement reads that it shares the concerns of the Faculty Senate’s executive officers that the search process of the university’s chancellor has caused “immeasurable harm to our institution and and its reputation.”

The Black Student Union also released a statement Friday regarding the IHL’s decision.

The statement emphasized that the student organization has “no confidence” in the Mississippi Board of Trustees of the State Institution of Higher Learning.

During Tuesday’s Senate meeting, a “no confidence” amendment to the now passed resolution was brought to the floor for discussion by Zachary Guthrie, assistant professor of history; however, the amendment was voted down 42 to 1.
