CCC President Reacts to SCOTUS Affirmative Action Decision


One Finger Lakes college is responding to the US Supreme Court’s Thursday decision finding race conscious affirmative action unconstitutional.

In a press release, Cayuga Community College President Doctor Brian Durant said the decision said the following:

“Today’s Supreme Court decision regarding the use of affirmative action in college admissions is disappointing and a damaging blow to students, families and the higher education system. Like our fellow SUNY institutions, Cayuga prides itself as being a home for all students, one dedicated to creating accessible educational pathways and opportunities for students to achieve the lives and careers they choose. Our promise of equitable access to higher education, and our admiration and respect for students who pursue that path, will not change in light of today’s announcement.”

The court ruled in two decisions that policies at Harvard and the University of North Carolina violated the 14th Amendment to the US Constitution.
