  The U.S. Supreme Court upheld the University of Texas’ affirmative action program Thursday.   Universities in Ohio are considering how the decision could affect their admissions policy.

Both  Ohio State and Miami University believe the high court’s 4 to 3 decision backs up the policies they have in place.

Sharon Davies is OSU’s Vice Provost for Diversity.

“It is heartening that the court reaffirms the value that we derive from a diverse university community,” she said.

During a forum earlier this week, Crawford was asked about university/community relations, the next big thing in higher education, and how he would improve diversity at Miami.
