Workshop for Student Analysis of 2012 Admission Policy
247 Cesar Chavez (MSD Student Lounge)
6:30 PM, Tuesday September 14
In February 2009, the Regents approved major changes to freshman undergraduate admissions policies that could have far-reaching consequences for the composition of the UC system's student body for decades to come. Although the stated goal of these policies was to improve admissions of underrepresented minorities, these changes were made without significant consultation of affected communities and without solid data supporting the effectiveness of the changes (of the three simulation studies conducted by UC, 2 predicted massive DECREASES in underrepresented minority enrollment, while the 3rd predicted 'race-neutral effects.)
The purpose of this workshop is to introduce the data, policy documents of the 2012 policy to student activists for close analysis. Activism on this issue will not be effective without deeper analysis of how the new policy could affect all underrepresented minorities on campus. Participants will present their findings at a forum a week later on September 21, 2010.
