This paper examines how statistical data on affirmative action programs in American institutions of higher learning seems to suggest that affirmative action policies have helped to increase cultural and racial diversity on college campuses. It looks at how minority students have made significant gains in approaching representative populations at American colleges and universities. It also explores how current affirmative action policies do not substantially assist low-income minority students in attaining admission to college and how affirmative action programs that consider only minority status as a factor in determining admission do not benefit low-income minority students.
