  • The American Psychological Association (APA) recently released a statement opposing the Trump administration's decision to eliminate guidelines that support affirmative action in college admissions. In response, NCME’s Board of Directors issued the following statement:

NCME acknowledges the complexities of the college admissions process and believes colleges should not be restricted with respect to the variables they use to make admissions decisions. Therefore, we stand in agreement with APA on this issue, and encourage colleges to use the academic and demographic information they believe is most valuable in achieving their admissions goals.
