Admissions Live - Race-Conscious Admission

August 16, 2016

On June 23, 2016, the U.S. Supreme Court announced its second decision in Fisher v. University of Texas at Austin, which upheld the University of Texas’s race-conscious admissions program under federal law. The decision has already had an impact on policy development, considerations, and the efforts colleges and universities make to consider race in admission and enrollment. In this episode of Admissions Live we’ll speak with Terry Taylor, Education Counsel’s senior policy and legal advisor, about key takeaways from the recent decision and discuss guiding principles that will help your campus leaders craft responses to the decision and create strategies for race-conscious admission moving forward.
