The University of California’s governing board on Monday unanimously approved restoring affirmative action in state colleges and government jobs, reported the Associated Press.
What this means is the university’s Board of Regents endorsed a proposal that would ask voters in November to end a statewide ban on considering an applicant’s sex or race in public higher education and employment. This ban has been blamed for a decline in diversity at what is one of the country’s largest university systems.
