MACRAO Legislative Update-June 30, 2023

In our earlier legislative updates this academic year, we mentioned that the Supreme Court would be hearing two cases (Harvard, University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill) related to affirmative action and admissions. The decisions in these cases were released yesterday morning, so the MACRAO Governmental Relations Committee wanted to provide you an update. The admissions systems used by these two institutions were determined to be unconstitutional. We have included links to Inside Higher Ed and AACRAO articles related to the decision as well as a link to the Supreme Court decision below.

AACRAO release a statement in response to the rulings yesterday afternoon, which can be accessed at the link below:

For additional information, you can join colleagues from NASFAA, NACAC, and ACCRAO for a webinar on Wednesday, July 19 at 3 p.m. ET (member login required to register). The webinar will provide you with a streamlined, practical analysis of the court’s opinion and clarity on the implications for institutional enrollment policy and practice. The webinar will include recommended strategies and actions steps to consider.
