“Stanford’s enrollment rate for white students in the Class of 2026 was 22%, a drop from 40% for the Class of 2016 just ten years ago.”
This shouldn’t surprise anyone. This is the end product of the left’s obsession with equity.
The Stanford Review reports:
Stanford’s Racial Engineering
Stanford’s enrollment rate for white students in the Class of 2026 was 22%, a drop from 40% for the Class of 2016 just ten years ago. While Stanford claims that “the University does not use quotas of any kind in its admission process,” a further exploration of Stanford’s enrollment statistics by the Review reveals that the university has seemingly taken part in racial engineering over the past several years—practically exchanging white applicants for Asian applicants while holding other racial group enrollment rates constant.
Over an eleven-year period, the data demonstrates that Stanford has decreased enrollment of its white students by approximately 15% and increased the enrollment of its Asian students by about 10%. All other racial groups, however, have remained roughly the same.
In 1978, the Supreme Court ruled in Regents of the University of California vs. Bakke that racial quotas were unconstitutional. Stanford claims to comply with Bakke, but the data points to a different story. Black and Hispanic enrollment rates for the Class of 2026 vary only by 0.76% and 0.44% from their enrollment rates for the Class of 2015, respectively. Whites and Asians in the Class of 2026, however, vary by 12.35% and 8.37% from their enrollment rates over a decade ago in the Class of 2015.
The data shows that the decrease in white enrollment, and an increase in Asian enrollment began shifting most rapidly around the Class of 2019. Why?
In 2014, charges were filed against Harvard University and The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill alleging that the schools discriminated against Asian applicants. Data amongst the Ivy League schools shows that they all had strikingly similar Asian enrollment levels that remained constant despite a large increase in the Asian population and as other schools like Caltech were enrolling more Asian students. It was around this exact same time, with the Stanford Class of 2019, that white enrollment began to steadily decrease as Asian enrollment began to steadily increase.
