The Supreme Court and Race-Conscious Admission

Home » Advocacy » The Supreme Court and Race-Conscious Admission

Oral arguments in the SFFA v. Harvard/UNC race-conscious admission cases took place on Monday, October 31, 2022. The Court’s majority justices appeared to cast a skeptical eye on the two institutions’ methods for incorporating race into the admission decision-making process. Their final opinion will not be issued until early- to mid-2023. NACAC is developing resources to assist colleges and high schools adapt as necessary to the decision when it is issued, building on collaborative work with the Access and Diversity Collaborative and including future NACAC education and training content.

Stay informed on these cases with these resources.
