Evidence of Racial Preferences at UW-Madison?

Oct 18, 2011 |

In this recent article for The Capital Times, W. Lee Hansen, a member of NAS and Professor Emeritus of Economics at UW-Madison, provides evidence that the preferential admissions process at UW discriminates based on race and ethnicity.

The Center for Equal Opportunity published two reports on the use of racial preferences at UW-Madison last month.  The reports generated an angry protest against the findings (see the article by Peter Wood, "Mobbing for Preferences"). Dr. Hansen, who was present for the events of September 13, will soon publish a complete eyewitness account of the day along with a new assessment of the DoubleTree Hotel protest on the NAS website.
