"What if admissions could be done in a totally new way? Without tests? Without the many parts of the process -- think of legacy admissions -- that favor wealthier applicants? The National Association for College Admission Counseling has just created a commission to rethink the entire admissions process 'through a racial equity lens'" Inside Higher Ed reports.
..."The commission (members are listed at the end of this article) consists of admissions leaders and college presidents and business leaders. It is a diverse panel, not only in terms of race, but also through including several members from community colleges or those focused on transfer admissions (an area that NACAC has been weak at in the past). The panel also is supported by the National Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators and is funded by the Lumina Foundation."
