OXFORD, Miss. (WTVA) - Some Ole Miss students sat silent during a protest at the faculty senate meeting on Tuesday night. 

They are upset about the selection of newly appointed university chancellor, Dr. Glenn Boyce, and the State College Board.

The State College Board announced Boyce's appointment on Friday.

After Tuesday's scheduled meeting, the senate opened up a discussion about the college board's decision and even passed a resolution.  

The resolution asks the College Board for "complete accounting and detailed timeline of the recently completed search for the next chancellor of the University of Mississippi."

The faculty senate gave the College Board a deadline of 5 p.m. on Oct. 15 to have all of the information that is sought to be turned into them.
