Admissions Overhaul Alert: Supreme Court Ruling Sparks Urgent Policy Changes

In June 2023, the Supreme Court ruled that the admissions practices used by Harvard University and the University of North Carolina violated the Fourteenth Amendment’s Equal Protection Clause. This decision will have far-reaching consequences for all institutions that consider race in their admission processes. 

You need to understand the immediate impact and learn how to modify the policies and systems at your institution. The ruling has many nuances, such as allowing colleges and universities to assess individuals’ experiences with racial discrimination.
