Statement on the SCOTUS Case

Yesterday, the United States Supreme Court announced that it would hear legal challenges to Harvard’s admissions process, which currently considers race as one factor among many. The Harvard Black Men’s Forum supports Harvard’s admissions process and strongly believes in the importance of creating a diverse campus community. This lawsuit threatens to undermine efforts at Harvard and universities across the country to diversify their student populations and increase access to institutions of higher learning. As supported by multiple legal victories in lower courts, Harvard’s admissions process is constitutional and works to create a diverse academic and social experience for all students. In closing, the Harvard Black Men’s Forum urges the Supreme Court to support Harvard’s admission process.
