Breaking Down the Supreme Court’s Block on Race-Based Affirmative Action in College Admissions

On June 29, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that use of race in college and university admissions violates the Equal Protection Clause of the 14th Amendment. What does this mean for your institution going forward?

On July 12, 2023, Brigid Harrington and Aimee Bierman broke down this decision, including topics such as:

  • An explanation of the court’s decision
  • Race-based considerations that may still be permitted
  • Impacts on other aspects of the admissions process




Stay tuned for details on our in-person discussions in August about admissions strategies in light of this decision.
