Radford University Statement on Supreme Court Admissions Ruling

Radford University leadership is aware of the recent United States Supreme Court ruling regarding the use of race in college admissions decisions.

The admissions process at Radford University does not consider race. Radford will continue to offer access to a diversity of applicants from the region and world, bringing varied qualities such as life experiences, special talents and unique skills to our Radford campus and Roanoke location. Powered by our 12-to-1 student-to-faculty ratio, Highlanders get a personalized, high-touch education driven by a culture of care.

The Supreme Court ruling will not change the extraordinary contributions of the faculty and staff in serving the needs of each student. As a comprehensive public institution and in alignment with our mission, Radford University’s high acceptance rate empowers students from all backgrounds by providing transformative educational experiences from the undergraduate to the doctoral level. Radford’s exceptional students are comprised of 33 percent from ethnically diverse backgrounds with 82 percent of all students receiving financial aid.

Radford University remains committed to lowering barriers to access for all students and serving underrepresented and underserved populations who seek career advancement through high-quality curricular and co-curricular opportunities.
