History Faculty to Serve on the Chancellor’s Advisory Committee on History and Context

Three members of the Arch Dalrymple III Department of History have been selected by Chancellor Jeffrey Vitter to serve on the Chancellor’s Advisory Committee on History and Context (CACHC), which is charged with recommending campus sites, including monuments, buildings, and street names, that should be contextualized to better explain the environments in which they were created or named and how those environments compare to our core institutional values. Charles Ross, Professor of History and Director of African American Studies, John Neff, Associate Professor of History and Director of the Center for Civil War Research, and Anne Twitty, Associate Professor of History, will serve alongside eleven other members of the CACHC. The committee will engage in a transparent and inclusive process that aligns with the UM Creed and employ a variety of methods to ensure broad community input, including the addition of ad hoc expertise as needed on a project-by-project basis, and will keep the community informed of the status of projects under consideration.
