MSM President Gandre responds to Supreme Court affirmative action decision

Friday, June 29, 2023

Today, the Supreme Court reversed decades of legal precedent and upended affirmative action policies for American colleges and universities. Today, in response to this decision, MSM reaffirms our belief that building a diverse and inclusive campus community of exceptionally talented students with varied perspectives and life experiences creates a stronger and greater institution.  Although, like all other institutions, we will comply with the law, this decision does not change the fact that we remain committed to the inclusive community we continue to build.

James Gandre, President
Manhattan School of Music
