MSU discusses affirmative action

June 27, 2013

On Monday, the U.S. Supreme Court voted 7-1 to return a case concerning affirmative action in the University of Texas admission system to lower courts.

Abigail Noel Fisher of Sugar Land, Texas had sued the university after it rejected her application in 2008, claiming that it used affirmative action policies to admit minority students less qualified than her. The Supreme Court’s opinion affirmed the use of race in college admissions but also outlined tight restrictions for that use.
