U. of Mass. Limits Racial Preferences, Despite Vow To Increase Minority Enrollment.
Healy, Patrick
Chronicle of Higher Education, v45 n26 pA30-A31 Mar 5 1999
The decision of the University of Massachusetts at Amherst to stop giving significant admissions preference to minority students sparked student protests and debate about universities' promises of affirmative action. Constitutional scholars and higher-education officials found the university's numerical goals for admissions legally risky, so the institution will limit but not abandon admission preferences. (MSE)
