Demand Letter to 150 Medical Schools to End Race-Based Admissions Policies in Response to Supreme Court Decision

On July 6, 2023, the Liberty Justice Center announced efforts to notify more than one hundred and fifty medical schools across the country about their legal obligation to end race-based admissions policies in response to the Supreme Court’s recent ruling in Students for Fair Admissions, Inc. v. President and Fellows of Harvard College.

The Supreme Court ruling concludes that schools can no longer discriminate based on an individual’s skin color when reviewing their application for admission.

“In an industry where merit and skill must be the most important factors when selecting the top applicants for admission, medical schools have a moral obligation to swiftly comply with the law and remove these discriminatory practices,” said Jacob Huebert, President of Liberty Justice Center.

The Liberty Justice Center is prepared to challenge any higher educational institution that continues to discriminate against students, faculty, or board leaders. The letter, which was addressed to medical school deans all across the country, urges leaders to “immediately cease any and all policies, practices, programs, or procedures that include a racial component,” including so-called “Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion” programs and policies.

The Liberty Justice Center submitted an amicus brief in this consequential case, which can be viewed here. The brief argued that affirmative action is discriminatory and is an inefficient way to obtain diversity, particularly noting universities’ discrimination against Asians and Asian-Americans, as well as the universities’ failure to recognize the diversity among Asians and Asian-Americans.
