The Office of the President issued the following statement Tuesday (April 8) regarding the Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruling on Proposition 209:

"Today's federal appellate court ruling upholding Proposition 209 will have no effect on University of California undergraduate admission decisions for fall 1997. The UC Board of Regents resolution eliminating the use of race, gender and ethnicity in admissions is consistent with Proposition 209. Any future university decisions regarding admissions or other programs that may be affected by Proposition 209 will be taken in accordance with the law."
