Holistic admissions practices are designed to help universities consider a broad range of factors reflecting an applicant’s academic readiness, contribution to the incoming class, and potential for success both in school and later as a professional. Join us as Dr. Fair explores various strategies utilized by nursing schools and medical schools when moving to holistic, race-neutral admissions policies to diversify student bodies.
