Texas A&M is severing all ties with Russian entities because of its aggression in Ukraine.
Prime Minister John Sharp sent a memo to member CEOs of the Texas A&M system, asking them to dissolve all agreements, particularly related to academia, research and intellectual property.
In the memo, Sharp said, “The Texas A&M University System will not tolerate or assist Russia in any way as it continues its brutal, senseless, and senseless attack on a sovereign nation rights of Ukraine and its people.”
Sharp also made clear that his decision to sever ties with Russia should not be seen as an indictment against lecturers of Russian descent or criticism of faculty members working to improve conditions in Russia.
He said that he trusted most, if not all, of the faculty members who opposed the aggressive actions of Vladimir Putin and his associates.
