Statement Regarding Reversal of Federal Guidance on the Use of Race in Admissions

The University of Virginia is disappointed in the Trump Administration’s action to revoke the federal guidance on the use of race as one of many factors in the admission process. The University embraces diversity of thought, background and experience and believes diversity positively contributes to the life of our University and the society at large. The courts have allowed colleges and universities to use a holistic admission process that considers the whole person and their unique contributions. The University will continue to seek the best minds from all walks of life as they reflect the best qualities of our nation.
