At the same time, more than one-third of the country's population lives in states like California, Florida and MI that have banned race-conscious admissions in state universities in recent years. "Harvard remains committed to enrolling diverse classes of students", said Rachael Dane, spokeswoman for the university. Brown's statement makes it clear the university views diversity on campus as essential to its academic mission.

Of the students admitted from minority groups, 22.2 percent are Asian, 14.6 percent are African-American, 11.6 percent are Latino and 2.5 percent are Native American or Pacific Islander, according to Harvard, putting the percentage of minority students at approximately 50.8 - slightly more than half of all incoming freshmen.

"Harvard's admissions process considers each applicant as a whole person, and we review many factors".

It is altogether fair to look upon a fresh foray by President Trump's Justice Department, under Attorney General-for-now Jeff Sessions, with more than a little skepticism.

Both Ochi and Chavez say it's been hard to predict the direction of the Trump Administration on higher education, and that means they'll keep watching.

And given that USA policies are older than most, much of the cutting-edge thinking on affirmative action is now coming from other parts of the world.

Blum is the same figure who helped to bring the landmark University of Texas-Austin case to the Supreme Court. It's estimated that minorities accounted for more than 43 percent of incoming students at Ivy League schools in 2015 - up from 37 percent in 2010.

Harvard University students walk through the campus. These recruited athletes typically "commit" to a university long before other students are even allowed to submit their applications. Among the 63 institutions deemed "most competitive" by Barron's Profiles of American Colleges, 93 percent considered race in 1994.

The Justice Department said it had no broad plans to investigate whether college and university admission programs discriminate against students based on race, seeking to defray worries that a job posting signaled an effort to reverse course on affirmative action.

South Africa's many, and varied, alternative access programs not only admit underrepresented students - especially black female students - but they also provide special courses and mentoring to facilitate those students' success.

That may mean that the case is aimed for the Supreme Court, and may wage the next war in the fight over the use of race in admissions policies.

He concludes: "College and university admissions programs are not the place to promote partisan visions of social justice, but they are the place to produce the most dynamic and profound learning environments".

Countries that have some kind of affirmative action related to gender in higher education admissions are now spread across world regions, and include eight countries in Africa, seven in Europe and four in North America and the Caribbean.
