Study Finds Admission Discrimination at the University of Oklahoma
A new study finds evidence of racial discrimination in some admissions area at the University of Oklahoma.
It was released by the Center for Equal Opportunity and in it, it found evidence of racial discrimination in law, undergraduate, and medical school admissions at OU.
The study found African Americans were admitted to all three schools with lower academic qualifications than students from other racial and ethnic groups. There was some evidence of preferential treatment for American Indian applicants, as well.
Dr. Althea Nagai at ceousa.org helped write the study.
It will be formally released and discussed at 11 am Oct. 22 in Oklahoma City at the Hampton Inn Suites 300 E. Sheridan Ave.
