Tales of Tibet
Thank you so much for everyone who came out to programs this week! We really appreciate all of the support and without you the program wouldn't have been the huge success that it was. We do want to clarify one point however. As leadership in MSC Freshman Leadership International (MSC FLI), a student committee within the Memorial Student Center, we have come to understand that our email invitation to campus to come to the Tales of Tibet program contained a controversial statement. We now realize that the word “annexation” is politically charged, and we now understand the implications behind our statement. We did not intend to advocate for any political position. By using this term, we did not believe we would be inadvertently supporting any particular political standpoint.
We are sorry our lack of understanding has been upsetting to fellow Aggies and friends of Texas A&M.
Any statements made by the monks are not representative of Texas A&M University, the Memorial Student Center, or MSC FLI.
We are grateful to the concerned parties for bringing this issue to our attention, and we welcome feedback on our future programs. As students, our foremost priority is student learning. Without this opportunity, we would not have been able to grow as both an organization and as individuals.
MSC Freshman Leadership International is a freshman organization that presents international outreach and service programs that promote cultural understanding and international awareness among students at Texas A&M University.
Howdy Class of 2018!
