Following is a statement from The University of Texas at Austin President Gregory L. Fenves. 

“The U.S. Supreme Court in 2016 affirmed The University of Texas’ efforts to enroll a diverse student body that provides educational benefits for all students. That decision upheld our holistic admissions policies, which remain central to our constitutional mandate to serve the state of Texas, and our mission to prepare graduates to thrive in society. The University of Texas seeks to provide the highest quality education for our students, and diversity is essential to those efforts.”
