Fulfilling the need for fair and transparent college admissions
by Larry Lundblad and Scott R. Olson, March 20, 2019
Last week news broke of a major college admissions scandal, in which wealthy parents bribed a path for their sons and daughters into elite institutions.
Like most Americans, we are appalled. But as local leaders in higher education, we are also indignant, thinking of all the students who were not treated fairly in their pursuit of a degree.
At Minnesota State College Southeast and Winona State University, we know our students have been afforded equal opportunities on their path to a degree. And we know this because our employees at MSC Southeast and WSU work hard to ensure that admissions processes are fair and transparent.
