Arlington, VA (March 15, 2021) – The National Association for College Admission Counseling (NACAC) condemns the growing incidence of racism and violence against Asian, Asian American, and Pacific Islander students and colleagues occurring in US schools and postsecondary institutions during the COVID-19 pandemic.
NACAC’s core values expressed in our Guide to Ethical Practice in College Admission commit our members to “eliminate from the education system bias based on race (and) ethnicity” and all other forms of discrimination. This commitment is more important than ever as our nation strives to overcome a global pandemic that has caused so much suffering. We stand by our students and colleagues who are Asian, Asian American, or Pacific Islanders, and against all acts of violence and hate, and we urge our fellow citizens to do the same.
