Uh Oh!

The U.S. Commission on Civil Rights announced today that it will subpoena the records of 19 higher education institutions, including Shepherd University, in the Washington, DC area to determine whether those institutions discriminated against female applicants for undergraduate admission in violation of Title IX.  As discussed in a post several months ago, men are becoming a scarcer commodity in higher education, and I’d be surprised if it weren’t the case that at least a few of these institutions have de facto affirmative action programs for men to counterbalance that trend, which would violate Title IX if it can be proven.
