The Implications of "Regents of California v. Bakke" For University Admission and Hiring.
Equal Opportunity Review, Feb 1979
This paper deals with the application of the dissenting opinions of the Supreme Court justices in the Allan Bakke case to a range of admission and hiring practices in which universities have engaged, or might engage. The issues posed in the Bakke case, the basic positions in each of the justices' opinions, and the interrelationship between the opinions are briefly described. The practical implications of the Bakke decision are then discussed in terms of what sorts of university programs of admissions and hiring appear permissible after Bakke. Taken into consideration are the following: (1) the relevance of State law and the distinction between private and public universities; (2) admission practices as they affect disadvantaged and minority students, particularly with regard to racial criteria; and (3) racial and sexual criteria in university hiring.
