Caldwell named vice chancellor for diversity ASB discusses senator etiquette MIA SIMS

Katrina Myers Caldwell spoke on diversity at the vice chancellor open interview session in September.


After months of searching, Ole Miss named the new vice chancellor for diversity and community engagement Tuesday. Katrina Caldwell is currently employed at Northern Illinois University as the assistant vice president for diversity and equity since 2012. Before that,

she directed the Center for Intercultural Programs and Adult Student Affairs at DePaul University in Chicago. She will begin her first day at Ole Miss on Jan. 1, 2017. Caldwell is from Memphis, Tennessee, originally and said she was excited for the chance to work in the South again. She said she wants to make all students, prospective or enrolled, feel like Ole Miss is a welcoming place.

Growing up in Memphis, her mother told her she could not apply to Ole Miss because of the issues surrounding race and diversity. Caldwell said this time around, her mom pushed her to apply for this position. “What I’ve read and heard about this institution and the work that you’re doing, I want to be a part of that,” Caldwell said. “It takes people to make change happen and, from what I’ve seen, I think you’ve got the


people here.” Caldwell said she knows how important people are to a big university. She said she cares about the faculty she hires and works hard to get to know her students. “I do approach things from a story,” Caldwell said. “I start with a story first. It’s the best way I learn, so I use it as a tool.” Vice Chancellor for Student


Associated Student Body leaders met Tuesday to reinforce and improve campus communication with new and incumbent senators. During a powerpoint presentation, ASB President Austin Powell went through every branch of ASB to remind senators of the role each branch plays, discussing the importance of effectively communicating with each other. “We’re under what’s called shared governance,” Powell said. “Each body of members at the university has their own governing system. Students have one, faculty members have one and administration has one as well.” There are several types of communication ASB members use to inform the rest of the student body. One was urgent communication, which he said is anything happening on campus that is life-threatening including incidents like active shooters or threatening protest groups coming to campus. “We want to make sure our advisers know about these situations, and also our grad as-


Oxford parents address racial concerns in district SLADE RAND

Residents came together Tuesday night to voice their concerns about the Oxford School Board’s “poor communication” after the high school newspaper reported the district was looking into adding a separate school for low-income students. Earlier this month, The Charger quoted School Board Superintendent Brian Harvey in an article about plans to open a separate school for those students receiving free or reduced lunch. Parents contacted attorney Walter Zinn to represent them to the Oxford School District.

Zinn called for the Oxford School Board to hold Tuesday’s open meeting, which was announced only 25 hours in advance. “Tonight is a small representation of the passion we’ve had at these past meetings we’ve held,” Zinn said. Because most students in the reduced lunch program are African-American, many parents thought Harvey’s comments were racially charged, according to Zinn. Zinn introduced parent Tori Marion White, who said she was upset because OSD did not keep parents involved in their plans to

The racial problems of Ole Miss through fresh eyes


I have lived in Oxford for a short two months, and the problems facing black students on campus have already become apparent to me. Like many honors freshmen, I spent one of my days this semester in the Union read-

ing Ghosts of Mississippi, the account of the integration of Ole Miss. It was hard for me to imagine what is now a seemingly peaceful, kind campus as a war zone fueled by racism. I went about my day imagining the horror that took place on the campus I now call home fewer than 60 years ago. To be honest, it was pretty unsettling. I tried to think of it the same way many others have explained it to me, as a time past, some even saying there is too much focus on it now, detracting from other issues. As a white male, this seemed rather reasonable to me. Sure, there were the occasional rebel flags, but I only thought of those as inconsiderate. That was all before I got a text about a protest going on at the Lyceum.

As soon as I got the message, I looked up the Facebook post causing the uproar, as well as the chancellor’s original response. I was horrified. Perhaps just as distressing as the post itself was the lack of pushback on the issue. Racism seemed alive and well at the University of Mississippi; not calling racism unacceptable made us complicit in it. Then I went to the Lyceum to see what was actually going on, and what I saw when I arrived was beautiful. There were students of multiple ethnicities all sitting together, peacefully working to make all students feel safer in our community. I talked to one of the leaders of the protest, asking her what other students should do

to make campus a better place for everyone. She responded with two main points that I think everyone on campus, from Chancellor Vitter to myself, should take to heart. Do not allow racism to be acceptable in your sphere of influence. This is especially important for privileged people, because it’s generally in privileged communities that racism abounds unchecked. When racism becomes acceptable in friend groups, it becomes acceptable in the campus atmosphere. When it becomes acceptable in the campus atmosphere, it becomes acceptable in campus leadership. When it becomes acceptable in campus leadership, it becomes systemic racism. Educate yourself on people of color and their past. The

original Facebook post originated from someone who was angry at the indignation of the Black Lives Matter protests. Perhaps if he had understood the long battle that people of color have fought in our country to simply be treated as humans, he would empathize more with the outrage of racism that is still present in our nation. Being a bystander is unacceptable. If we want to eliminate these attitudes from our community, we must make sure our values are upheld in every part of campus, starting with our conversations.

continued from page 1 lower the school’s achievement gap. She asked if the separate school was still an option and what other options the board was considering. “We’re not doing that,” School Board President Marian Barksdale said. Barksdale, along with the four other board members, sat onstage across from the lectern, looking out at more than 100 attendees. Barksdale was the only one to speak; the other board members listened and wrote notes. After the session, School Board Secretary Gray Edmondson said the board plans to take everything into consideration and make the improvements they need. The second parent to address the board, Daniel Mathias, said he moved to Oxford so his son could be in a good school. His son is in middle school in the district. Mathias said he was highly concerned with the language OSD has used to talk about kids in their schools. “Our children aren’t stupid. They can read just like us; they can see the words that you’re using to hurt,” Mathias said. After Mathias spoke, Zinn called Wokova Sobukwe, an upset community member, to the podium. Sobukwe criticized the school district’s approach to lessening its achievement gap. Sobukwe said he believed poverty has nothing to do with achievement, but rather teachers have a whole lot to do with it. “Put somebody in the school that wants those children to succeed. I don’t care if they don’t got a dime; they’re gonna succeed,” Sobukwe said. The crowd applauded when he called for the district to open a new school and hire Zinn as principal. Oxford Police Department Sgt. Mario Weekly and one other officer stood to the left of the stage, monitoring the room. “This is a special meeting, and we just came because this is a sensitive subject,” Weekly said. Former schoolteacher LaTanya Dixon asked the board to hire more African-American faculty. One of OHS’ football coaches

THE DAILY MISSISSIPPIAN | 19 OCTOBER 2016 | PAGE 3 was the first white person to address the board. The coach said he did not think the superintendent meant black versus white or poor versus rich. He also said he had not read The Charger’s article, so Zinn brought him a copy. Mathias stood up and joined the coach at the lectern, and the crowd became restless. Sgt Weekly and his partner stepped forward right around then. “I’m glad you came up here. No one else is up here defending this but us,” Mathias said to the coach. Barksdale calmed the crowd down. “I think things have gotten a little out of control,” Barksdale said. “I’d like us to return to the demeanor we had 15 minutes ago.” Despite the brief disturbance, Barksdale and Zinn said the listening session was helpful. Barksdale said it opened up a dialogue that could benefit the school district as a whole. “It will help bring the community together, and I know people say that, but I think it’s actually about to happen,” Barksdale said. Zinn said the school board should understand that just because they’re not mentioning race, they are still dealing with it.

ed officials. “Before you set up those meetings,” Powell said. “We want to make sure the respective officers in that list are in that conversation.” Powell said he and Vice President Michael Howell should always be kept in the loop Powell went over email etiquette and ways to formally communicate with faculty. As the meeting ended, committees gathered to discuss new ideas and issues. Howell said the meeting was held to strengthen communica-

tion between members of ASB and faculty leaders across the campus. “We want to make sure we’re very clear about how to connect with the chancellor, the vice chancellor or anyone else as well as we can,” Howell said. “We want to make sure we go through the right avenues in order to let the student body and the administration know that we are a very cohesive and responsible organization that they can put their trust in.”

ner LaBanc said. “I think she’s going to bring a lot of powerful experience.” Caldwell was the last of four candidates who applied for the position. Assistant to the Chancellor Concerning Minority Affairs Donald Cole said Caldwell won over her interviewees because she put forth her “let’s-figurethis-out-together” disposition. “Ms. Caldwell’s experience, demeanor, professionalism

and her ability to relate to the vision for the direction and leadership needed for our institution at this moment were impressive and resonated with most of the individuals that interviewed with her,” Cole said. Cole said there were good candidates who applied for the chancellor position but Caldwell has a proven record of success in the area she will be leading on campus.








Bye summer; hello fall. Fall brings a plethora of great holidays, but most importantly, Halloween. This means candy galore, popcorn balls and procrastinating by watching “Hocus Pocus” three times a week, even though you have to study. Halloween is the ultimate holiday where people have the stamp of approval to be whomever they desire, even if that means looking like an absolute nutcase in the process. If your heart tells you to be Nicki Minaj or a massive hotdog, by all means, go for it. Helping my friends find a costume for Halloween has always been my forte’, so I’ve taken to The DM to suggest ideas for the general public based on popular TV shows. Halloween should be fun, it’s all about expressing your inner child, even if that means making a complete fool out of yourself. Hopefully these five TV show-inspired costumes have given you some inspiration to step out the box this year and have an amazing costume. Have a fabulous Halloween!

white silk robe white gloves (or red latex gloves or black claw gloves) fake blood killer fashion sense fierce attitude

All hail Queen Lady Gaga! She slays “AHS” in extravagant haute couture fashion, causing havoc throughout the Hotel Cortez as “The Countess” in season five of “American Horror Story.” The Countess is a blood-sucking fashion killer who was the previous owner of Hotel Cortez. Her fashion sense is old Hollywood glam with a twist of vampire sexiness. Mastering this costume can be tricky, but once you master the look, you’ll slay whatever Halloween party you choose to grace with your presence. Start with the most important part: a white silk robe, and then add white gloves. You could also substitute with black gloves or red latex gloves to give the outfit some color. For another pop of color, add a red lip. And of course, the outfit would be incomplete without buying fake blood and adding some aesthetically pleasing splatters.

Red trench coat Blonde wig Black leggings or jeans A phone that can never be tracked A scandalous and devious mind

“Pretty Little Liars” was and always will be an iconic teen show of this decade. And yes, after 10 years we know who “A” is, and we also know the identity of the infamous girl in the red coat. “Red coat” was an anonymous character on “PLL” until her face was revealed in a later season of the show. In spite of her mysterious identity, viewers knew that she was a sneaky, blonde-haired girl who wore an iconic bright red trench coat layered atop a hoodie. I love this costume. Not only is it cute and simple, but it’s also affordable! A red trench coat and a blonde wig is all you need for this costume. Add a pair of black jeans and some black heels for a more villainous vibe. And if your trench coat doesn’t have a hoodie, that’s fine. Just pop your collar and be scandalous.

Fake blood An assortment of Halloween makeup Distressed jeans and shirt A sense of constant survival mode

If a zombie apocalypse happens, best believe I’m killing everyone. “The Walking Dead” is a hit show based on the zombie apocalypse. Everyone is in survival mode, going on killing sprees for zombies and other bad guys. If you’re an extreme artist, this costume idea is perfect. You can show off your makeup skills by creating painted-on scars and open wounds. Cut your old clothes up and wear them in layers to make a simple yet exciting costume. You can customize your zombie to your personality or to a theme and make a popular idea unique.

A snobby attitude A group of followers who do whatever you say Faux fur Pink or white dress Sunglasses and super cute accessories

Chanel this, Chanel that! The Chanels run the world and the Kappa Kappa Tau sorority house in the hit TV show “Scream Queens.” Chanel Oberlin is Chanel No. 1, which means she’s the H.C.I.C., or Head Chanel In Charge — all the other girls follow her. The girls are the definition of rich snobs. They are wealthy, beautiful, fashionable and everyone wants to be them. This costume idea would be super cute with a group of friends. Their style is reminiscent of school girls with a lot of sass and sense of style. The Chanels are known for wearing different shades of pink, so start by buying pink faux furs. To make the costume a little more affordable, try finding different pink or white dresses. Every dress should be distinctly different to reflect your (or your favorite Chanel’s) personality. Adding accessories is key. Go for necklaces, bracelets and sunglasses.

Massive butt Tight, revealing dress 6-inch heels Brunette or blonde wig

People love to hate the Kardashians, but then they eventually end up loving them. Yes, the infamous Kardashian Krew. If you want to be a big booty Armenian princess for a night, then this costume is absolutely perfect for you. The Kardashians all have distinctly different body shapes, height and hair, so if you’re doing this in a group, that might be a factor to consider. The Kardashians would be easy for people to recognize since they are known for their massive butts and revealing outfits. Girls all have that one dress in their closet that their moms never let them wear, and this costume calls for you to unearth it. Wear a body con with a long black wig if you’re Kim and Kourtney, or buy a blonde wig if you’re Khloe. Welcome to the Kardashian Family.

Ole Miss volleyball finds bright spot in recent losses KIRSTEN MCGILL

After a quick turn around from a loss to Kentucky, the Ole Miss women’s volleyball team is set to take on Auburn tonight at home. Although the Rebels lost their last four SEC matchups, Head Coach Steven McRoberts said he feels like those four matches were the best his team has played in conference play. Those matches just so happened to be against the four best teams in the league at the moment. “We’re in a tough stretch right now in the season,” McRoberts said. “Out of our first seven matches, we’ve played the top four teams in the league.” With sophomore right side hitter Kathryn Cather back

for the Kentucky game, the team had more balance, and McRoberts was glad to have his team healthy again. A couple of freshmen had to step up and fill Cather’s position while she was out, but without her, the number of kills decreased. “This is not to discredit them, but one of them was not even in the position we have been training her in,” McRoberts said. “When you plug Kat back in, you are getting four kills a set, and she is second in the league hitting over.” Although the Rebels fell to Kentucky in three sets, the team hasn’t stopped with its energy or preparation. “It was just a really good volleyball match,” McRoberts said. “We were right there in every single set. Lost in three.”

that we failed to make, or making a call that would have been better in a certain situation,” Freeze said. “We all have those, and we all have to improve ourselves this week as we get ready for an LSU team that is super talented.” It’s improved some, and the defense held its own in the second half in Fayetteville, giving Ole Miss a chance to win the game. But those things will also need to be sured up, especially with Ole Miss navigating its way through the middle of its SEC schedule. “I think it goes to effort. We want to give so much effort that we lose focus on what is ahead of us. We just have to be smarter,” Haynes said. Ole Miss is doing its best to

Ole Miss defense looks to cut down on big plays BRIAN SCOTT RIPPEE

In the moments after Ole Miss’ narrow 34-30 defeat to Arkansas in Fayetteville on Saturday night, Defensive Coordinator Dave Wommack spoke with a sense of disappointment and frustration about just how small the margin between a win and a loss in the SEC is. “Its disappointing. We’ve got to learn how to get better each week as a player and as a coach,” Wommack said after the game. “If you don’t do that in this league, anything can happen. One play makes a difference in games like this, and we have to find a way to overcome that as players and coaches.“ Ole Miss has struggled giving up the big play at times this year, and it gave up two early on in the game last Saturday night, like on the game’s first score, when Austin Allen took advantage of poor technique in the Rebels’ secondary to find Dominique Reed for a 51-yard touchdown strike. Or the opening play on the Razorbacks’ next scoring drive, when Rawleigh Williams III bounced a run outside for 53 to kickstart what would result in another touchdown.


Chad Kelly looks for an open receiver in last season’s game against LSU. “It was two individuals deciding to play a different technique than we worked on all week,” Head Coach Hugh Freeze said. “Played outside leverage in-

stead of playing inside.” Ole Miss has a younger defense, especially on the back end in the secondary. The coaching staff has talked about

fits and eyes being in the right place and other fundamentals that have seemingly been the crux of the Rebels giving up big plays.

“It’s mainly because our eyes are in the wrong spot most of the time that we give up explosive plays,” Marquis Haynes
