Monday's U.S. Supreme Court ruling on affirmative action apparently will have little impact at Kansas institutions of higher learning.
The vice president for student affairs at Wichita State University, Ron Kopita, says WSU essentially is open to any student who meets minimum academic standards. And the school offers space to another ten percent deemed to have academic potential.
Kopita says he speaks only for WSU. But all Kansas schools fall under the same Board of Regents guidelines.
Kopita says the admissions process does not focus on racial issues and the school is very aggressive in trying to recruit minorities. In his words, "That's the difference, we have many strategies to encourage students of color to apply."
