Many of us were gratified when the Supreme Court issued its ruling against affirmative action a couple of months ago. Recall that UNC-Chapel Hill was one of the defendants that lost the case.
Do No Harm is reporting that institutions are devising at least a couple of strategies to get around these rulings. These include the following:
- Requiring that applicants complete a “diversity statement” from which certain clues about the applicant’s race or ethnicity can be inferred;
- Accreditation bodies can require extra efforts toward recruitment and retention of favored minorities.
I do not know what UNC Chapel Hill is doing at this point, although it seems nearly certain that the leftists running that institution will try something. And the Republican-controlled UNC Board of Governors will likely do little to stop it.
