A Statement From Minds Matter
Yesterday, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that universities may no longer use race in their consideration of candidates for admission.
The ruling will change the college admissions landscape for our students and students like ours. Race-conscious admission policies were designed to level the playing field for systematically excluded students, promote diversity, and foster a more representative educational system. We cannot yet imagine all that will result from these new restrictions, but this ruling reinforces the need for continued effort to ensure that all students have equitable opportunities to access and earn a college degree.
Minds Matter will continue to strive towards a nation where systemic barriers are torn down, allowing every student the opportunity to reach their full potential. Our commitment to ensuring equal access to high-quality higher education endures, and our vision for a limitless future for young people is now more important than ever.
