The U.S. Supreme Court has agreed to hear a lawsuit challenging the use of race in admissions to the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. The high court took the rare step of bypassing the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals to take the case. The UNC case is paired with a similar challenge of admissions policy at Harvard. The nation’s highest court will hear the case this fall. A decision is expected by June 2023. In this conversation, we will discuss concerns about the ongoing use of race as a factor in university admissions. We will discuss how a ruling from the U.S. Supreme Court could university admissions moving forward.
