According to the Associated Press, “Towson University is trying a new tack to increase enrollment by men. The school is accepting students with low grades but high S-A-T scores. The formula allows the school to draw from a group that’s mostly men without actually making gender the reason people are admitted.”
It’s been proven that the SAT is culturally and statistically biased against People of Color. Towson University is essentially leveraging SAT scores to enroll more white men.
update: Towson University officials admit that students enrolled via this formula “have so far been mostly white men.“
