The University of South Carolina was hit with a Title VI criticism after it tried to create a particular educational program that expressly excluded whites from participation. The requirements for its Business Success Academy restricted eligibility to accepted highschool juniors or seniors who recognized as “African American or Black, Hispanic, LatinX, American Indian or Alaskan Native, Asian, Hawaiian or Pacific Islander, or Two or More Races.” It took a proper criticism to get the general public faculty to conform to drop racial exclusions.
According to the conservative web site Campus Reform, the applying has been revised to declare this system is “[open] to all Rising High School Juniors and Seniors in South Carolina.” The posting additional states that “students from diverse racial/ethnic backgrounds are strongly encouraged to apply.”
The academy meets in June and college students finishing the course will likely be eligible to obtain a $5,000 renewable for as much as 4 years upon enrollment to the college.
There has been no assertion from the college on using a threshold racial exclusion for this system or who reviewed or accepted the race-based standards.
