Montgomery College President Dr. Jermaine F. Williams Issues Statement on SCOTUS Affirmative Action Decision

"Diversity brings value to the places and spaces where we learn and work, and that belief is unquestioned at Montgomery College. This ruling not only impacts students’ sense of belonging in higher education, it also detracts from their potential growth and professional success. For the 79% of Montgomery College students who identify as people of color, this ruling has the power to create another systemic barrier that potentially limits some of their opportunities in transfer to four-year institutions. Montgomery College continues, as an open access institution, to welcome all people who want to pursue education and opportunity. We encourage other institutions to do the same.”
