Last week, the Associated Student Body senate released a draft of legislation aimed at relocating the university’s Confederate monument on the Circle to the on-campus Confederate cemetery. Soon after, other campus groups and communities took to voicing their own opinions about Ole Miss’s Confederate monument.

The Graduate Student Council Senate passed a resolution on Monday night urging the university to relocate the Confederate monument to the cemetery. The Senate voted 15-4 with one abstention.

The ASB followed suit Tuesday night, unanimously passing their original resolution 47-0.

The faculty senate is expected to consider a similar resolution on Thursday night, furthering the discussion about the Confederate monument’s relocation.

Ahead of the faculty senate’s impending vote, the Twitter community shared its thoughts on the monument’s potential relocation.
