Education Department Dismisses Harvard Asian-American Discrimination Complaint

Updated on

The U.S. Education Department dismissed a complaint against Harvard University alleging discrimination against Asian-American applicants in undergraduate admissions because a similar case is pending in federal court.

The department’s Office for Civil Rights rejected the complaint filed in May by more than 60 Asian-American groups, according to a letter from the agency obtained by Bloomberg. OCR confirmed that the complaint was dismissed.
