The Advisory Committee on Undergraduate Admissions (“Advisory Committee”), a standing committee of the faculty chartered under the Faculty Code of University Government, hereby establishes the Committee on Race-Neutral Strategies (“Committee”).

The Committee is charged:

1. To consider whether there are workable race-neutral strategies and practices that the Office of Undergraduate Admissions could employ in evaluating applications for undergraduate admission;

2. To advise the Office of Undergraduate Admissions about these strategies and practices; and

3. To report to the Advisory Committee on the Committee’s consideration of specific race-neutral strategies approximately every two years. In addition, the Committee will, as appropriate, provide information regarding its assessments and recommendations to the Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences, the Executive Vice Chancellor and Provost, the Chancellor, and the Board of Trustees.

In order to assure that the Committee’s evaluation is informed by existing legal standards and guidance and the practices of the University’s peer institutions, the Committee will stay abreast of legal developments as well as best practices in undergraduate admissions at comparable highly selective universities.
