RALEIGH, N.C. – University of North Carolina System President Peter Hans issues the following statement about today’s U.S. Supreme Court opinion in the case of Students for Fair Admissions, Inc. v. University of North Carolina:
“We are closely reviewing today’s decision and will follow the law.
“Our public universities do extraordinary work every day to serve students of all backgrounds, beliefs, income levels and life experiences. Every student in North Carolina should know that the UNC System welcomes their talent and ambition. The most important work of higher education is not in deciding how to allocate limited admissions slots at highly competitive schools, but in reaching and encouraging more students to take advantage of our 16 remarkable public universities.”
