U.S. Education Department Investigating Harvard and Princeton for Discrimination against APAs

An Indian American student has triggered an investigation by the U.S. Department of Education’s Office of Civil Rights into discrimination by Harvard and Princeton University against Asian Americans. Studies from Princeton itself conclude that Asian Americans need higher test scores in order to gain admission. Harvard “does not discriminate against Asian-American applicants” says Harvard spokesman Jeff Neal.  Princeton spokesman Martin Mbugua states: “We make admissions decisions on a case-by-case basis in our efforts to build a well-rounded, diverse class.”
