How: Principles and How to Begin

Models: Holistic Admissions

Each institution's mission and educational goals are unique, and the admissions process it develops and utilizes should and will reflect this. Nevertheless, other universities and university systems can provide models of different and thoughtful approaches to achieving similar goals. Therefore, we offer the following admissions “models” from our own and other institutions in the belief that they may assist our institutions in evaluating their own admissions process.

The examples selected here were identified because of the institution’s claim to have adopted a holistic approach to race-conscious admissions to achieve the educational benefits of a diverse student body. In providing these examples, we make no representation that these “models” will actually achieve the desired diversity or that they will survive legal challenge.
