of Visitors resolution on admissions
Board of Visitors unanimously endorses the Universityıs continuing
commitment to recruiting and enrolling students of diverse talents
and backgrounds. It also supports the changes made by the president
in the Universityıs undergraduate admission system. The admission
system considers each applicant on the basis of his or her merits,
in an equitable manner, and in accordance with law.
Every student admitted under our policies is qualified to attend.
Each one deserves the finest education we can offer. By any measure,
the University boasts one of the strongest student bodies in American
higher education. Its students graduate on-time and on-track at
higher rates than those at all but a handful of institutions.
The academic successes of its African-American and other minority
students are the envy of every major university. The system works.
We are prepared to defend it.
diversity within the University community takes commitment, but
brings indisputable benefits. The Board and the administration
consider maintaining diversity a top priority now and in the years
