Institutions of higher education may actively strive for achieving diversity in student bodies and faculty by reevaluating their approach for improving retention of underrepresented minority groups (Comeaux, Chapman, & Contreras, 2019).  Comeaux et al. (2019) applied critical race theory to evaluate college choice and access.  Cerezo, McWhirter, Peña, Valdez, and Bustos (2013) explained critical race theory for education counseling.  Harper, Patton, and Wooden (2009) assessed rolling back of affirmative action admission policies with critical race theory.  Allen, Rodriguez, and Esters (2020) described the role of chief diversity officers in institutions of higher education.
