Sign the Complaint against Yale University, Brown University and Dartmouth College

By | March 14, 2016

Dear Leaders:

In order to eliminate Ivy League Universities’ widespread and severe discrimination against Asian American children during the college admissions process, we united 64 Asian-American organizations and filed a civil rights violation complaint against Harvard University in May 2015. However, the Department of Education dismissed our complaint citing an ongoing lawsuit against Harvard. Today, most American elite universities still engage severe discrimination against our children.
As a result, Asian American Coalition for Education calls for Asian-American organizations to unite and jointly file complaints with the Department of Education and the Department of Justice against Yale University, Brown University and Dartmouth College in protest of their discrimination against Asian-American applicants. We picked the three universities because they have lowest Asian American admission rate and there are no ongoing lawsuit against them. This action will bring two major benefits:

1. It will lead to social and political pressure urging Ivy League universities to stop their discrimination against Asian-American applicants and to significantly increase admission rate of Asian American applicants. After the Department of Education started investigating Harvard in 1988, its admission rate of Asian-Americans jumped from 10.8% in 1988 to 16.1% in 1991. Similarly, after a few Asian-American students filed a complaint against Princeton since 2006, its admission rate of Asian Americans increased from 14.7% in 2007 to 21.9% in 2012 and 25.4% in 2014.

2. It will let the Supreme Court hear our strong voice, and urge the Supreme Court to ban racial discrimination in college admissions in its upcoming ruling on Fisher vs. University of Texas, expected in later Spring 2016. After the Justice Scalia passed away, this may become the only chance that the Supreme Court has a majority in favor of such ruling in next decade. Asian-American communities cannot afford to be silent at this critical moment to air our voice.
Please join this fight, to win this crucial battle for your own children, and for all Asian Americans!
