Dukes: A&M Contradicts Itself

“As an alumnus of Texas A&M, I am truly disappointed that the University has chosen to

create an admissions policy that is contradictory to their stated goal of seeking to improve minority

admissions,” said Representative Dawnna Dukes. “Establishing scholarships for first generation

disadvantaged minority students, while giving preference to second and third generation advantaged

students is contradictory to an even-handed policy. An aggressive attempt to recruit historically

disadvantaged applicants is not achieved by giving historically advantaged applicants a leg up. Such an

admission policy cannot possibly increase minority student enrollment.” [Sen. Rodney Ellis Press
