UM's Twin Cities campus will stop considering race and legacy ties In admissions

 (Minneapolis, MN)  --  The University of Minnesota officials at the Twin Cities campus say they will no longer use race and ties to alumni when considering potential applicants.  

The move comes after the U.S. Supreme Court's ruling this summer that ended affirmative action policies.  

University Director of Admissions Keri Risic says every year her department reviews undergraduate admissions practices to ensure that they are only asking for information necessary to make good admissions decisions.
