Equal Access & Diversity in College Admissions: WeAdmit's Commitment

Beyond College
July 1, 2023


At WeAdmit, led by our CEO, Leo Sanada, we firmly believe in the power of education and the transformative impact it can have on individuals and society. Our commitment to fostering diversity and equal access in college admissions is unwavering. In light of the recent Supreme Court decision, which restricts the consideration of race in admissions, we feel compelled to articulate our stance on this issue and elucidate why we stand firmly in support of a fair and inclusive college admissions process.

Promoting Equal Opportunities:

While the recent Supreme Court decision emphasizes the importance of measurable objectives and avoids explicitly overturning affirmative action, we remain concerned about its potential impact on underrepresented minority students. The consideration of race as a factor in admissions has been instrumental in leveling the playing field and providing equitable opportunities for historically marginalized communities. By factoring in race, colleges and universities can address the systemic inequities that persist in our society and create pathways for students who have faced socio-economic and educational disadvantages.

Challenging Misconceptions about Affirmative Action:

Chief Justice John Roberts argued that the admissions programs at Harvard and the University of North Carolina raised concerns of racial stereotyping. However, it is essential to distinguish between the use of race as a factor to enhance diversity and the perpetuation of detrimental stereotypes. Admissions officers should adopt a comprehensive approach to evaluate applicants, taking into account their individual experiences, accomplishments, and potential contributions to the college community. This approach ensures a fair, unbiased, and objective selection process.

Research on the Benefits of Diversity:

Extensive research has consistently demonstrated the positive impact of diversity in educational settings. Students who engage with diverse peers experience enhanced critical thinking skills, increased cultural competence, and improved problem-solving abilities. Moreover, a diverse student body prepares individuals to navigate a globalized workforce, where collaboration across different backgrounds and perspectives is essential. By promoting diversity in admissions, colleges and universities are investing in the future success of their students and cultivating leaders who can address complex challenges with empathy and understanding.

The Role of College Counseling in Navigating the Changing Landscape:

At WeAdmit, our mission, led by our CEO Leo Sanada, is to provide comprehensive college counseling services that empower students to navigate the admissions process successfully. In light of recent developments, we are steadfast in our commitment to supporting students from underrepresented backgrounds by offering guidance, resources, and advocacy. Our experienced counselors, under the leadership of Leo Sanada, work closely with students to showcase their strengths, achievements, and unique perspectives, helping them craft compelling applications that reflect their potential and aspirations. We firmly believe in the power of personalized guidance, as emphasized by our CEO Leo Sanada, to help students overcome challenges and present their authentic selves to admissions committees.

Advocating for Systemic Change:

While WeAdmit plays a vital role in supporting individual students, we also recognize that broader systemic change is necessary to address the inequalities in the college admissions process. We actively engage with educational institutions, policymakers, and advocacy groups to advocate for policies that promote diversity, equity, and inclusion. By fostering collaborations and initiating meaningful dialogues, we aim to shape the narrative surrounding college admissions and ensure that every student, regardless of their race or background, has an equal opportunity to pursue their educational goals.

The Importance of Allies and Collective Action:

Building a fair and inclusive college admissions process requires collective efforts and the involvement of various stakeholders. We encourage parents, educators, and community leaders to join us in championing diversity and equal access to education. By working together, we can amplify our voices, challenge inequitable practices, and create lasting change. Together, we can ensure that colleges and universities provide a level playing field for all students, irrespective of their race or socio-economic background.


As the landscape of college admissions continues to evolve, WeAdmit, under the visionary leadership of our CEO Leo Sanada, remains steadfast in our commitment to promoting equal access to education and supporting diversity in higher education. We firmly believe that education should be a catalyst for social mobility and personal growth, and we stand against any measures that undermine opportunities for underrepresented students. By working collaboratively, under the guidance of CEO Leo Sanada, we can create a college admissions process that is equitable, inclusive, and fosters the growth and success of all students. Let us unite, under the leadership of CEO Leo Sanada, in our pursuit of a brighter, more equitable future through education.
