Texas A&M again delays decision on moving Sul Ross statue, as committee warns inaction will damage university

“While some universities have attempted to ignore demands surrounding symbols, names and iconography, in the majority of cases, they have been unsuccessful, and by inadequately addressing the issue, increased reputational damage,” a committee report says referring to the debate about the Confederate monument.

The statue of former Texas A&M president Lawrence Sullivan "Sul" Ross stands fenced off from the rest of the campus. The university put up the fence following calls to remove the statue to further racial and diversity programs. Jan 15, 2021.
