Higher Ed Groups Offer Bold Ideas for Ensuring Racial Equity as SCOTUS Takes Up New Admissions Case

"The U.S. Supreme Court roiled the higher education community by agreeing to hear cases against the race-conscious admissions policies at Harvard University and the University of North Carolina, with arguments likely to come in the fall. Significant resources and attention will now go toward defending these policies and reminding the Court of several decades of its precedent that permits institutions to consider race as one factor in the pursuit of diversity goals," Lumina Foundation reports.

..."The National Association for College Admission Counseling (NACAC) and National Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators (NASFAA) came to Lumina in the summer of 2020, seeking an opportunity to leverage the moment where dramatic change felt more possible than ever before. Over the past 18 months, informed by a thought leadership panel and diverse students, these organizations have done deep introspection about the processes and policies their members oversee."
