Representative Reynolds Reacts to the Supreme Court Decision in Fisher v. University of Texas  print page

(Fort Bend County, TX), On Friday, June 24, 2016, Representative Ron Reynolds- House District 27, released the following statement on the Supreme Court’s decision in Fisher v. University of Texas.

“Fisher v. University of Texas (UT) at Austin is a lawsuit concerning UT's use of diversity in its admissions process. It has twice come to the United States Supreme Court on appeal. Today's near-unanimous decision leaves intact the important principle that universities have a compelling interest in a diverse student body, and that race can be one factor among many that universities consider in a carefully crafted admissions program. I believe that the University of Texas has made a strong showing that its admissions plan was necessary to achieve meaningful diversity, and a rich diverse student population provides greater opportunity and a better learning environment for everyone."
