Texas A&M officials say moving Sul Ross statue is no longer an option, but students say the university never made that clear

University officials said Wednesday that the decision to keep the Ross statue in place is not a new one, and that the diversity committee that has been studying the issue for the past three months was never considering removing the statue.

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