Statement from Dr. Vincent Regarding Cancellation of YCT Event

November 19, 2013

We are pleased that the Young Conservatives of Texas have wisely decided to cancel the Catch an Illegal Immigrant event.  As a university, we welcome the robust exchange of ideas and freedom of expression but always advocate for and support an inclusive and respectful learning environment.  We strongly support students who have organized around this issue in order to advocate for that inclusion, and we are reassured that discussion and protest around pivotal issues can take place on campus in a way that acknowledges and respects all individuals.
