In a 6-3 decision, the court’s six conservative justices declared that colleges’ use of race as a factor in student admissions is unconstitutional


President Biden said, “We cannot let this decision be the last word.The decision upended decades of law and the higher education landscape


The ruling will reshape top universities and impact student prospects, but its direct impact on most college students is limited


Schools cite diversity goals in considering race, benefiting Black and Latino students who face disadvantages. Critics argue Asian Americans may be negatively affected as other groups receive preference


The ruling did not prohibit all mentions of race in college applications. Prospective students can write in application essays about how race has affected their live.


The court’s three liberals dissented: Justice Sotomayor's rare dissent from the bench indicates significant disagreement, centred around differing beliefs on the significance of effect


The ruling is expected to benefit historically Black colleges and universities.California’s experience indicates that schools can if they’re willing, take steps that improve diversity even without explicitly considering race


The court also broadened protections for religious workers in a separate case.The court is expected to end its term today with decisions on student debt relief and L.G.B.T.Q. right
