Deep Dive Episode 52 – Race In Admissions: Texas Tech Medical School

Listen to the Podcast

The Texas Tech Medical School recently approved an agreement with the United States Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights to end the use of racial preferences in their admissions process. The agreement was reached after over a decade of negotiation, initiated by a complaint filed by the Center for Equal Opportunity against Texas Tech in 2004. The agreement is a promising sign for opponents of racial preferencing in school admissions process, and could have significant implications for the future.

Roger Clegg joins us to discuss the recent agreement and its implications.
