The National Association of Scholars website has posted an article authored by CIR president Terence Pell about recent CIR efforts to force three Michigan universities to disclose data showing the harmful effects of racial preference on the academic performance of minority students. Preliminary data (summarized in declarations made by expert witness Richard Sander) suggests that University of Michigan expert testimony in Grutter v. Bollinger may have been faulty. CIR requested the data pursuant to court ordered discovery in litigation brought by several advocacy groups challenging Michigan’s new amendment barring the use of racial preferences (BAMN v. Granholm).
