This grant supports efforts by the Council of Graduate Schools to provide services to the higher education community in the wake of the United States Supreme Court’s decisions in Students For Fair Admissions v. Harvard and Students For Fair Admissions v. University of North Carolina, two cases challenging the constitutionality of the use of race as one factor in college and university admissions decisions.  Grant funding will allow CGS to understand the ways in which the SCOTUS decisions are impacting graduate admissions and broader graduate education DEI efforts; to educate the graduate community about strategies for pursuing equity in the post-decision environment; and to build consensus about legally sound admissions practices for graduate education across key communities.
