New Survey from American Council on Education Aims to Examine Changing Admissions Policies
The College Board’s Access & Diversity Collaborative has
partnered with the American Council on Education’s Center for Policy Research
and Strategy on a new survey study to examine how legal challenges to
race-conscious admissions have changed contemporary admissions practices at
selective colleges and universities.
If you are an enrollment or admissions director, please take
a moment fill out the confidential and anonymous survey that will help ACE and
its partners learn how recent state and federal legislation and court rulings
have impacted admissions practices, and how to better support institutions as
they work to increase diversity on campuses.
Welcome New Sponsors
The Access and Diversity Collaborative would like to extend warm welcome to the Fiver Sisters Colleges: Barnard, Bryn Mawr, Mt. Holyoke, Smith, and Wellesley who have joined the Collaborative as sponsors.
Join the Access & Diversity Collaborative: Policy Leadership and Institutional Support for the “Second Decade”
We are about to publish the new list of the Access & Diversity Collaborative 2.0 sponsoring institutions and organizations, and we would like to include you.
It is not too late to join, and we welcome your participation in the group that will help us set the agenda for the future work of the Collaborative. While the Court did not upset the applecart with respect to current law, it did send signals that the next case will be treated very differently in their eyes. Now is NOT the time to be complacent on the issue of the proper use of race and ethnicity in college admissions decisions. The Collaborative will continue to lead and guide programmatic and policy responses to these and other related issues of access and diversity. Join the group and lend your voice to the discussion.
