3Qs: SCOTUS rejects affirmative action challenge

In a win for affir­ma­tive action advo­cates, the Supreme Court on Thursday rejected a chal­lenge to a pro­gram at the Uni­ver­sity of Texas that con­siders race as a lim­ited factor in admis­sions deci­sions. Dan Urman, assis­tant teaching pro­fessor and director of the Doc­torate in Law and Policy pro­gram, exam­ines the court’s deci­sion and what it means for affir­ma­tive action.
