NADOHE Panel: Colleges Must Prepare for Affirmative Action Verdicts Now

"The Supreme Court’s decisions in SFFA v. Harvard and SFFA v. University of North Carolina, the cases that could re-shape the role of race in admissions or even ban it entirely, are not likely to be known until next June. But institutions need to start preparing now for a range of possible outcomes, said Art Coleman, co-founder of EducationCounsel, a consultancy that works with schools on issues of diversity," Diverse: Issues in Higher Education reports

... "Coleman said that a common structure that schools are using is to have an overarching committee focusing on big picture issues, with subcommittees focusing on potential effects for individual departments. Schools should also make use of pre-existing resources, such as the National Association for College Admissions Counseling/National Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators report 'Toward a More Equitable Future for Post-Secondary Access,' and the Handbook on Diversity and the Law from the American Association for the Advancement of Science."
