C.A.D.E.T. Organization to Host Panel Discussion

CADET organization logoThe Texas A&M University Corps of Cadets Cultural Awareness & Diversity Expansion Team (C.A.D.E.T.) will host a panel discussion, ’50 Years of Inclusion: A Cultural Transfusion,’ at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, March 27. Doors will open at 6 p.m. and the event is open to the public.

The event, to be held in the MSC Bethancourt Ballrooms, 2300 D&E, ties into the university’s ‘Celebrating 50 Years of Inclusion at Texas A&M University’ – marking the landmark decision to open the doors to minorities and women.

The discussion will acknowledge the progress and impact that inclusion has had on the Texas A&M campus and culture while highlighting the achievements of minority and female Aggie graduates for both Texas A&M and the Corps of Cadets while paying tribute to those who made this inclusion possible.

The panel will include Malcolm Hall ’62 – the 16th Student Body President who wrote the referendum that allowed supported minority and female attendance at Texas A&M; State Representative Gene Wu ’00; Elaine Mendoza ’87, Texas A&M University Regent; Bill Jones ’81, former Texas A&M University Regent; Colonel Pauletta Blueitt ’81 (USAF Ret), former member of the Corps of Cadets; and current cadet Keltin Jordan ’14 – Corps Global Initiatives & Diversity Officer, and Program Moderator for the evening.

Each panelist will share their perspective on how inclusion has changed and affected the university, while creating a culture conducive to the University’s Vision 2020, along with the importance of diversity in the state, nation and globally.

The discussion will include a question and answer segment. Refreshments and a meet and greet session will take place upon the conclusion of the program.

Corps Review on Nov. 2 Cancelled

Due to the large amount of rain that fell in College Station the last couple of days, and the very soggy condition of Simpson Drill Field, we are going to have to cancel the Corps Review in support of veterans planned for 11 a.m. on Saturday, Nov. 2. We apologize that we will not be able to conduct the Corps Review tomorrow, but hope that all our veterans will still attend the game tomorrow and enjoy Military Appreciation Day activities during the game as the Aggies Beat the Hell Outta UTEP! Thanks for your understanding, and God Bless our Veterans!
