A&M Faculty Advertise for Inclusion

Following is the text of an advertisement placed in the Texas A&M student newspaper in early

December, 2003, following press reports that affirmative action would not be used in admissions. Text

sent via email by Professor Marco Portales of Texas A&M University. He notes that the media did not

publish any reports about this ad: Faculty Committed to an Inclusive Campus

<br?
To

publicly respond to recent incidents and messages of discrimination prepared and widely promulgated by

various campus groups, we, the undersigned faculty, confirm and publicly reaffirm the University's

Mission Statement and its commitment to an inclusive campus environment.

Texas A&M

University is dedicated to the discovery, development, communication, and application of
knowledge

in a wide range of academic and professional fields. Its mission of providing the highest quality

undergraduate and graduate programs is inseparable from its mission of developing

new
understandings through research and creativity. It prepares students to assume roles of

leadership,
responsibility, and service to society. Texas A&M assumes as its historic trust the

maintenance of freedom of inquiry and an intellectual environment nurturing the human mind and

spirit.

It welcomes and seeks to serve persons of all racial, ethnic, and geographic

groups, women and men
alike, as it addresses the needs of an increasingly diverse population and a

global economy. In the twenty-first century, Texas A&M University seeks to assume a place of

preeminence among public
universities while respecting its history and traditions.
