ACE and 36 other higher education organizations submitted this amicus brief to the U.S. District Court in Boston in Students for Fair Admissions, Inc., v. Harvard. The brief highlights ACE’s support of the “Harvard model” of holistic admissions review and, in particular, the use of race as one factor in reviewing applicants to achieve the goal of a talented, diverse incoming class.
The brief speaks to issues of diversity and admissions in
higher education overall, along with the institutional benefits that come with
the freedom to craft a holistic, individualized review of applicants.
