College Board Responds to the U.S. Supreme Court Ruling on Use of Race in Admissions

Today, the Supreme Court of the United States rendered its ruling on two cases involving the use of race in admission. We are disappointed by the Court’s decision and continue to believe strongly in the value of diversity in higher education, the benefits of which are proven and clear. In the wake of the decision, our mission remains unchanged. Together with our members in K–12 and higher education, we will redouble our efforts to make sure students from all backgrounds can be found by colleges and are prepared and supported when they get to campus.

As we look ahead in the immediate aftermath of the decision, College Board’s Access and Diversity Collaborative (ADC), a member-led advocacy initiative led by legal experts and higher education leaders, will continue its work to provide comprehensive resources and tools to help higher education make sense of this decision and its implications for policies and practices.

We will continue to work closely with our partners in higher education to find ways to achieve their goals and deliver on their commitment to building more diverse classes consistent with the law. And we will work with K–12 leaders and counselors to strengthen their efforts to advise and support students and families.
