The Wall Street Journal: Trump administration requires Texas Tech medical school to end use of race in determining admissions

Civil rights officials at the U.S. Education Department are requiring the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center medical school to cease factoring race into admissions decisions, putting other institutions of higher education on notice that their continued use of affirmative action policies will draw federal scrutiny.

The mandate came in a deal the medical school struck with the Education Department in February, concluding a 14-year federal investigation into the university’s use of affirmative action, according to a copy of the resolution agreement viewed by The Wall Street Journal. Other schools in the Texas Tech University System, including the flagship undergraduate program, dropped their use of affirmative action during the investigation.
