  • The Texas A&M School of Medicine removed photos of graduating seniors who are white males, which were prominently displayed at the entrance of the school, as an example of the university’s commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI).
  • The school indicated such in a survey completed last year for the Association of American Medical Colleges, a nonprofit accrediting organization. The survey responses, which touted the school’s commitment to DEI, were obtained via a Freedom of Information Act request by the medical watchdog group Do No Harm, which passed along the completed survey to The National Desk (TND).
  • In the survey, the school cited the fact that it removed “predominantly white male photos of graduating class prominently displayed on the entrance” as an example of promoting inclusive communications and branding.
