The Right take on higher education.

MCRI Watch


Implementation of the Michigan Civil Rights Initiative won’t be delayed:

Officials at Michigan’s three largest universities are spending the holiday weekend reviewing a federal appeals court ruling that ordered late Friday full compliance with state’s new affirmative action ban, also known as Proposal 2.

A federal appeals court ruled Friday night that three universities must immediately remove race and gender consideration from their admissions and financial aid decisions and fully comply with Proposal 2.

The 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruling effectively overturned the six-month delay a lower court judge granted last week to the University of Michigan, Michigan State University and Wayne State University.
