dc.description President Simone gives his personal position on Affirmative Action in higher education. Here, he also outlines the potential implications the 2003 U.S. Supreme Court ruling may have on RIT policy. en_US
dc.description.abstract Since 1978, the “Law of the land” has been the decision handed down by Justice Lewis F. Powell, Jr., in Regents of the University of California vs. Bakke. In a 5 to 4 vote, Justice Powell ruled that while quotas are illegal, some consideration could be given to a university applicant’s race in order to promote educational diversity, which is viewed as a compelling government interest. Race, then, can be considered as a “plus” factor out of a number of admissions-relevant factors that are being considered. en_US
