The forum, organized by the Undergraduate Students Association Council Academic Affairs Commission, was intended to discuss a report byUCLA law professor Richard Sander that claims the undergraduate admissions process is illegally taking race into account. The report was released on Oct. 23 and has since then sparked debate and events about the admissions process, including a rally and a separate forum held in late October. ...
UCLA admissions officials declined their invitations after receiving legal advice against participating in a public forum with Sander, according to an email from Janina Montero, vice chancellor of student affairs.
Youlonda Copeland-Morgan, associate vice chancellor for enrollment management, and Gary Clark, the new UCLA director of admission, were supposed to attend the forum with Montero. All declined to attend because of this legal advice, Montero said.
What's UCLA scared of? My guess is they're scared people will find out that holistic admission is cheating.
