• Statement on Race-Conscious Admissions and the Supreme Court

    The U.S. Supreme Court issued its decision with respect to the race-conscious admissions policies of the Harvard University and the University of North Carolina – Chapel Hill. The Phi Beta Kappa Society strongly disagrees with the majority opinion which prohibits the consideration of race or ethnicity in admissions and is concerned about the implications of this decision for recruitment, scholarships, affinity groups, housing and other programming.
