Students walk on the campus of Yale University in New Haven, Connecticut.
The Department of Justice on Wednesday dropped a case against Yale University in which it alleged that the Ivy League institution was discriminating against White and Asian applicants in its admissions process.
Yale had denied the allegations that its admissions practices were discriminatory.
The Justice Department under Trump targeted higher education institutions for admissions practices that factored in applicants race and country of origin.
The Justice Department announced in August that a two-year investigation determined that Yale’s practices were unlawful.
