“I echo the sentiment of the SUNY Board of Trustees and Chancellor John King, who noted, ‘Race-conscious admissions policies have enriched our institutions and our nation.… At SUNY, our resolve to provide opportunity for all has never been stronger.’

“At Buffalo State University, we steadfastly believe diversity makes us a stronger community as we look to prepare students to live, work, and serve our communities in a global society. Today’s Supreme Court decision is disappointing, but our commitment at Buffalo State University to advance, support, and celebrate inclusive excellence and diversity is resolute.”
