In a 6-2 vote this morning, the Supreme CourtÂ has upheld the Michigan ballot initiative to ban racial preferences in admissions to public universities. This vote overturned a lower court ruling.
The Supreme Court’s decision impacts the diversity efforts of theÂ University of MichiganÂ in Ann Arbor, who has been under fire for dwindling minority enrollment.
The controversial ProposalÂ 2,Â passed in 2006, allowed the banning of affirmative action. TheÂ NAACPÂ challenged this act, stating it unfairly rigs admission systems against minority students.
