Keep Mississippi Universities Open started this petition to Dr. Glenn Boyce Chancellor of the University of Mississippi and

We, the Petitioners, demand the immediate resignation or firing of Provost and Vice Chancellor of Academic Affairs, Dr.  Noel Wilkin for the reasons outlined below.  We also demand immediate provisions, as outlined below, for a 100% return to face to face classes at the University of Mississippi, Oxford, MS.

We, the Petitioners, believe that the currently altered academic experience of the vast majority of our young adult students is unacceptable and constitutes a failure by the University to provide the value promised and is a serious breach of contract. This 'Bait and Switch'  by the University and faculty occurred once it was too late, deliberately depriving students of the opportunity to seek other options for the semester. We demand the removal of Dr.  Noel Wilkin immediately through his resignation or firing.

Vice Chancellor of Academic Affairs, Noel Wilkins, has repeatedly ignored calls, emails and pleas from parents and students for academic help and a return to face to face classes. He has failed to serve the tuition paying students and parents by not responding to our hundreds of calls and emails throughout the Fall 2020 semester.  We refuse to fund an institution with a Provost who has allowed the infliction of academic and mental destruction upon the lives of our students. We believe this justifies our demand for the removal of Dr. Noel Wilkin immediately through his resignation or firing.    

The undersigned Petitioners, jointly demand that the University of Mississippi  immediately implement the necessary policies and procedures, communicated to Department Chairmen and Professors/Instructors, to mandate the return to academic instruction conditions which the students and parents were initially promised when decisions were made to attend the University. This implementation is to continue for the entirety of Spring Semester 2021 as well.

We, the Petitioners, believe that keeping college classrooms open is critical to the mental, emotional and physical well-being of our young adult students.

Petitioners also believe that our young adult students are being unnecessarily deprived of a critical and valued aspect of instruction that should be taking place in the classroom with no requirements of (a) limiting numbers from the norm, (b) social distancing, or (c) any other measures tainting the customary educational experience expected upon making the financial commitment to the University.

Petitioners demand the immediate removal of Dr. Noel Wilkin through his resignation or firing due to a financial breach of contract, financial and emotional damages to students and the continued academic and social isolation that he has allowed and/or mandated.
