This timely work addresses the present state of affirmative action in higher education after the landmark decisions of Gratz v. Bollnger and Grutter v. Bollinger. Informative chapters provide an overall understanding of the history of affirmative action in higher education in the United States, pointers to students on writing the crucial application essay, and discussion of the "percentage plan" states. Other chapters explore financial and student aid and historically black colleges and universities, and offer advice for veterans returning to school. Resource chapters include lists of print and nonprint sources for further research and reading. Accessible, practical and up-to-date, this one-stop guide reassures students and families that higher education remains within their grasp.


"While about one in five U.S. college students is a minority, many schools are unclear about the legalities of promoting inclusiveness. Beckman clarifies issues in the evolving affirmative action in higher education area, from the Bakke Supreme Court decision in 1978 through the landmark Grutter v. Bollinger case in 2003. More than half of the guide consists of a table of the affirmative action policy (if any) and minority enrollment at four-year colleges and universities, Federal guidelines on race as a consideration in financial aid decisions, resources, and a college application checklist." - Reference & Research Book News
