Admissions Practices in the Post-Indictment Era: Stay Out of Court and the Headlines

The U.S. Justice Department’s largest-ever college-admissions prosecution – based on indictments of dozens of defendants under the federal racketeering conspiracy law [18 USC sec. 1962] – stunned higher ed administrators and stole the headlines, when it was announced by the U.S. Attorney for the District of Massachusetts in mid-March. The headlines only got bolder, as the names of prominent Hollywood stars and other wealthy parents were revealed.

With increased scrutiny and oversight on the horizon, now more than ever, you must make sure your institution’s admissions policies are above board. But what does that mean, and where should you even start? From monitoring your athletic departments, to alumni relations… all the way to discrimination claims, standardized testing and donation dollars, now is the time to audit this ecosystem, develop policies, and implement checks and balances to stay out of trouble.
