Background[edit]

Bollinger was dean of the University of Michigan Law School in Ann Arbor from 1987 to 1994. As president of the University of Michigan, Bollinger was the defendant in two 1997 lawsuits that challenged the school’s policies of considering race in admissions. In 2003, the U.S. Supreme Court said Michigan’s law school could consider the race of applicants. At the same time, the court ruled that the school’s method of awarding points to minority applicants was too “narrowly tailored” to achieve the school’s stated wish for diversity on campus.[3]
