The agreement concludes a 14-year-long investigation into the school's use of affirmative action in its admissions process after someone who did not end up applying to the school filed a complaint with the Education Department's Office of Civil Rights in 2004. The Department of Education's office began the investigation in July 2005, according to department spokeswoman Elizabeth Hill.
The agreement states that the school of medicine will stop considering race and/or national origin "as part of the holistic admissions process." If the school decides to use race as a factor in the admissions process again, it must notify the Department of Education and provide a "reasoned, principled explanation" for why it plans to do so, according to the agreement.
