Skillman Foundation Responds to Supreme Court Ruling Against Affirmative Action in College Admissions
The Skillman Foundation today released the following statement from President and CEO Angelique Power in response to the Supreme Court’s decision to not consider race in university admissions.
“Diversity in educational institutions is not merely a political or social ideal; it is a fundamental aspect of preparing students for the complex realities of the world they will inhabit. By exposing students to a variety of perspectives, backgrounds, and experiences, we equip them with the necessary skills to thrive in an increasingly interconnected and diverse society.
Thus, the United State Supreme Court’s 6-3 ruling yesterday banning colleges and universities from race-conscious admissions marks a setback in our collective pursuit of a truly equal and inclusive society, and it undermines the progress we have made towards fostering diverse learning environments that benefit all students.”
