ND backs affirmative action in admissions

Author: Ed Cohen

Notre Dame joined 37 private colleges and universities in a legal brief supporting the University of Michigan’s affirmative action policies. The polices, opposed by President Bush, were being challenged in a case before the U.S. Supreme Court. Said Father Malloy: “At Notre Dame we believe it is imperative that our incoming classes reflect, as much as possible, the diversity of our nation, and we feel that our mix of students from all over the U.S. and the world adds to the educational experience.”
