DEBATE
Continued from Page 1
as compelling," Pucillo said.
In response to Cohen and Pucillo,
Gurin and Alger said diversity was a
compelling interest in terms of educa-
tional enhancement. Gurin provided evi-
dence of a necessary critical mass for
diversity. "Diversity is not a virus, you
don't just catch it," she said. She dis-
missed the argument of underrepresent-
ed students of color developing a stigma
of inferiority because of affirmative
action. "Students of color know they are
devalued even without affirmative
action," she said.
Alger reinforced the University's
admissions policies do not contain quo-

tas. Alger said four of the justices ruling
in the Bakke case would have claimed,
"Colleges and universities have the right
to remedy the effects of societal discrim-
inations," Alger said, adding there were
admitted white students with lower
grade point averages and test scores than
students of color denied admission.
"Every year we have white students with
lower grades and test scores than some
minority students who were rejected,"
Alger said.
LSA freshman Alex Sloan attended
the event because she was interested and
wanted to learn more about affirmative
action. She found the University's argu-
ment very compelling. "You can't sepa-
rate environment from educational
experience," Sloan said.

ADMISSIONS
Continued from Page 1
mative action," said Bruce Walker,
director of admissions at the University
of Texas at Austin. "We are happy with
the percent plan in the absence of affir-
mative action, but if we had the oppor-
tunity to use affirmative action ... we
would use it:'
The University of Texas system began
using the "affirmative access" percent
plan - which automatically admits stu-
dents graduating in the top 10 percent of
their high school class to the Texas pub-
lic college or university of their choice
- after the 1996 U.S. 5th Circuit Court
of Appeals decision in Hopwood v.
Texas. The decision banned schools in
Louisiana, Mississippi and Texas from
using race in admissions.
While Walker said the plans have
.been successful at certain schools in the
Texas system - including UT-Austin,
the state's top flagship school - he said
he does not believe the 10 percent plan
could be used as a blueprint for other
states. "If you looked at all of the per-
cent plans that are currently in place, it
would be hard to say that all of them
have been successful' he said.
"I think that is one of the problems
with the percentage plan - they are
dependent on a variety of factors of
being in place."
Walker said those factors include the
type of geographical racial segregation
within the state, how much outreach
universities and colleges are able to pro-
vide, the number of universities or cam-
puses within a school system and the
percentage of out-of-state students
accepted by the school.
Patricia Marin, a research associate at
the Civil Rights Project, said schools in
California, Texas and Florida that have
achieved rises in minority enrollment -
including UT-Austin, which saw its
overall percentage of minority freshman
increase this fall above its pre-Hopwood
numbers - have done so only because
of their use of raced-based recruitment,

retention and scholarship programs.
Marin said that while UT-Austin's
minority numbers may have finally
reached their 1996 numbers, the
state's minority population has
increased since then.
"The fact that Texas can say that they
are back to the numbers they were at
seven years ago is not a success because
the diversity of the state is increasing,"
she said.
"They should be higher than were
seven years ago."
She added that she believes percent
plans will not work in the majority of
states, and especially not in Michigan,
which has its minority populations
largely segregated in Ann Arbor, Flint
and Detroit. The state also runs its high-
er educational system differently than
do Florida, Texas and California.
"Every state is unique, and that is
the punch line here. To say that some-
thing that is in place in Texas can be
transferred to Michigan or New York
is to ignore the fact that these are
unique states with unique popula-
tions," she said.
Several higher education officials
agreed.
"We don't dispute the report's conclu-
sion that percent plans are a replace-
ment for affirmative action," University
of California spokesman Hanan Eisen-
man said, adding that the percent plan
has allowed California state universities
to accept a greater number of minority
students than was possible after the
passing of Proposition 209, which out-
lawed the use of race as a factor in
admissions.
"After Proposition 209 went into
effect, there was a drop in minority stu-
dents being admitted to the University
of California, but since then we have
rebounded, and 19.1 percent of students
are minorities, compared to 18.8 percent
in 1997,"he said.
"It has had a positive contribution on
all campuses here ... but there are limits
as to how U-C's experience can be
applied to the rest of the nation."
