University of Missouri officials are carefully reviewing a decision by the U-S Supreme Court that allows affirmative action to continue with some limits. The high court’s decision says universities can use race as a factor in admissions policies, but there are limits to how much race can weigh in on a school’s decision to accept a student. University of Missouri officials say all students who make academic standard are in, because there is no cap on the number of students allowed into Mizzou. University of Missouri Deputy Chancellor Michael Middleton says the school doesn’t really consider race in applications, but it does use affirmative action to help recruit minority students. Middleton says the implications of the court’s decision could be seen over a period of years. Middleton believes recruiting minorities is important, because students must have exposure to other races and other cultures to cope in today’s diverse world.
