U.S. Department of Education Ends Inquiry into Harvard Admissions

Harvard Crimson

February 17, 2012

The U.S. Department of Education has closed its investigation into alleged discrimination against Asian Americans in Harvard's admissions policies following the withdrawal of the initial complaint. In August 2011, an individual filed a complaint with the Office of Civil Rights of the Department of Education alleging rejection based on the student's Asian American ethnicity. The same individual accused Princeton University's admissions office of similar discriminatory practices, and that complaint has also been withdrawn. But OCR's investigation of Princeton is ongoing.
