The university, with about 5,000 students, didn't begin admitting black students until nearly 20 years after the U. "We failed to accurately represent the Lord and to fulfill the commandment to love others as ourselves. Though no known antagonism toward minorities or expressions of racism on a personal level have ever been tolerated on our campus, we allowed institutional policies to remain in place that were racially hurtful," the statement said.
The interracial dating ban was lifted in March 2000, not long after the policy became an issue in the Republican presidential primary. Bush was criticized when he spoke at the school during one of his first campaign stops.
