Dear UM faculty, staff and students,
We have committed to be transparent about the monument and its relocation. Last Monday (October 7), I received confirmation from our Facilities Planning Department that Mississippi Department of Archives and History (MDAH) has the monument slated to be on its December agenda.
Based on when we submitted the request, MDAH had initially anticipated it being on its December agenda. MDAH has informed us that, “with the complexity of the move, both the development and the review of the specs have taken longer than we had anticipated.” MDAH has indicated that they are “on track for December.”
If we receive any further updates, we will let you know.
