The issue of discrimination in the universities had earlier been noted in the University of Michigan where the Supreme Court upheld the right of affirmative action in the University’s Law School for their belief that race as a factor creates ‘’a compelling interest in obtaining the educational benefits that flow from a diverse student body’’ (quoted in Brunner). As a university which is open and friendly to all races, the New Horizon University would not like to be a victim of the Michigan University’s case.
Therefore, there is a greater need to revise the affirmative action policy in order to avoid its attempts to promote discrimination by its current affirmative action. This paper is set to provide a solution to the problem of racial discrimination at the New Horizon University by revising its affirmative action policy. The result should be a University that promotes fairness, equality as it strives to achieve its goal of providing education for all without any fear or favor. It all begins when a student needs an admission to the University. There has been tendency or an iota of likelihood that the University’s admission system is the core source of discrimination in the University (Sarah 2011). ...
They might also have been forced to choose courses that they may have not wished to study. The university therefore needs to make a change in its system of admission that will firstly abolish the quota system of admission. Candidates who apply to be admitted in this University should not be required to give their details of origin and race. However, their names and sex can be indicated in order to help identify their letters of offer as well as allocate them to bed a space, which is done according to sex. Possibly, the University should acquire an automated or digitized admission system. This is where candidates will automatically be admitted to the University provided they attain the minimum requirements for the University admission. This system will be open and free on the University’s website to all candidates who wish to apply. It will be in the form of a form that the candidate will be required to fill up, and once they are through and have qualified as per the requirements, they will get straight admission to the University. This system will prove effective as it will alienate admission system from direct contact of the University staff. Once the students have been admitted, there will just be a physical confirmation of their details with the details they gave during application. This is where their qualification will be verified as well as their identity to avoid cases of impersonation or use of fake documents. In this case, the admission process shall have been made free from discrimination and corruption. If there is a certain limit of the number of students that the University would like to admit, the digital admission system shall be made in such a way
