Justice Dept. drops suit accusing Yale of discriminating against white, Asian applicants
(CNBC) – The Department of Justice on Wednesday dropped a case against Yale University in which it alleged that the Ivy League institution was discriminating against White and Asian applicants in its admissions process.
The decision, announced in a filing in federal district court in Connecticut, marks a reversal from the Justice Department’s stance under former President Donald Trump, whose administration opposed education policies geared toward increasing racial diversity. President Joe Biden had made racial equity a top priority of his administration.
Yale had denied the allegations that its admissions practices were discriminatory. In a statement, spokeswoman Karen Peart said that the school was “gratified” by the DOJ’s decision.
