Minority-only recruitment programs draw scholarly criticism

Campus Reform reports:
Reed College in Oregon is offering an “all-inclusive, all-expenses paid” trip for high school students from “historically underrepresented racial and ethnic backgrounds.”

The “Discover Reed Fly-In” is a diversity recruitment program that exclusively targets U.S. high school seniors who are “African American, Latino, Asian American, Native American, Native Hawaiian, or Pacific Islander,” providing them with transportation, food, lodging, and a glimpse into the campus experience.
It appears Reed College is in violation of the 1964 Civil Right Act since it takes money from the federal government.
