Supreme Court Decisions on Fisher v. University of Texas at Austin

The East Coast Asian American Student Union (ECAASU) applauds the Supreme Court’s decision to send the case Fisher v. University of Texas Austin back to the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals. In an nearly unanimous decision (7-1), the Court argues that the admissions policy of University were not assessed properly by the lower court, and therefore must be re-evaluated. ECAASU hopes that with this re-evaluation, the lower courts can deem this policy as being essential to promoting diversity, and breaking down social boundaries on campus. Since our founding, ECAASU has stood in solidarity with traditionally underrepresented communities to support affirmative action.
