NEW — At ETS, our goal is to advance quality and equity in education for all people and it's the cornerstone for the work that we do. The Supreme Court's ruling in Fisher v. University of Texas at Austin brings the question of equity in education front and center. We're happy to bring you a series of issue briefs to help colleges and universities respond to the Supreme Court's decision in Fisher v. University of Texas. And we invite you to learn more about this important topic on our Strengthening Campus Diversity Planning page.
