Supreme Court's affirmative action decision will not affect Arizona

June 24, 2013

The Supreme Court’s decision to return a Texas affirmative action case to a lower court will not impact Arizonan schools. Arizonans will not be impacted. Arizona State University spokesman, Skip Derra said Arizona voters amended the state constitution in 2010 to end the use of affirmative action.

“It doesn’t affect Arizona State in any way because we don’t use affirmative action as part of the admissions process," Derra said.

This also applies to the University of Arizona and Northern Arizona State University.
