Harvard University and University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
The Supreme Court’s decisions in these cases have far-reaching implications for the future of equal opportunity in higher education.

For 35 years, since Asian Americans first filed a civil rights complaint against Harvard in 1988, Asian Americans have been fighting for equal education rights in college admissions. In 2015, 64 Asian American organizations filed a historic joint civil rights complaint against Ivy League colleges. Since then, Asian American communities have mobilized to provide unwavering support to Students for Fair Admissions and its lawsuits against Harvard University and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
