Most Americans Say Colleges Shouldn't Consider Race

MOST AMERICANS SAY COLLEGES SHOULDN'T CONSIDER RACE
MARCH 28, 2019

Nearly three-fourths of those surveyed by the Pew Research Firm oppose consideration of race in college admissions.
Only 7 percent of Americans believe that race or ethnicity should be a major factor in admissions decisions and 19 percent believe it should be a minor factor.  Solid majorities of white, black, Latino, and Asian Americans shared that view.  

I do not believe colleges and universities should change their admissions policies and practices to accommodate particular racial and ethnic groups.  Referencing my February 28 blog, college student populations are already growing more diverse with 45 percent of the undergraduate population and nearly 33 percent of the graduate population being people of color.
