ACE Opens Survey to Admissions and Enrollment Management Leaders

September 24, 2014

A Dream Undone

Study Will Gauge Access, Opportunity in Higher Education

​ACE’s Center for Policy Research and Strategy on Sept. 16 sent a survey to admissions and enrollment management leaders at selective public and private non-profit four-year institutions.

The results will inform a new study to examine how legal challenges to race-conscious admissions have changed contemporary admissions practices.

Specifically, the study has two focuses: (1) how statewide legislation and recent Supreme Court rulings have impacted outreach, recruitment and admissions practices, and (2) how admissions deans and enrollment managers are preparing for a future where the only legal constant seems to be change.

The final report and related products will serve as a practice resource for institutions seeking to advance diversity and access in the face of heightened scrutiny around race-conscious admissions.

Admissions and enrollment management leaders are being asked to take 15 minutes to complete one survey per campus. The results will be kept completely confidential and only aggregate data will be shared with the public.
