New Study Finds Admissions Counselors May Prefer Deracialized Students
For those opposed to affirmative action, the question of race in college applications may seem pointless — or anti-white even — but there’s evidence to show that, while institutions of higher education say they want diversity, it’s a certain kind they’re after.
Dr. Ted Thornhill is a sociology professor at Florida Gulf Coast University and the man who authored the paper, “We Want Black Students, Just Not You: How White Admissions Counselors Screen Black Prospective Students.”
Dr. Thornhill spoke with WGCU before presenting his findings at a Howard University panel on Wednesday.
The study in its entirety is freely available to read here through September.
