Avoiding Non-Artificial Discrimination Claims from College Students: Artifical Intelligence and Higher Education

October 28, 2023 @ 8:45 AM PDT

Although the use of AI in higher education has been increasingly utilized for the past decade, more recent public applications such as ChatGPT, Canva, and ChatBot have raised attention about this data analytic approach. Recent years have seen a huge expansion of AI into many aspects of day-to-day life as other sectors find uses for AI, including higher education. There are countless uses for AI in higher education, ranging from employment decisions to classroom aids to recruiting and admissions. Admissions is one area that is likely to see a large increase in AI use as the number of individuals applying to college continues to grow. According to one source, first-year college applicants are already up 20% this year. Institutions must find new ways to deal with the flood of applications being received, and AI offers a solution by streamlining and automating the process. However, AI does not come without concerns. Because AI operates based on data created by humans, any biases in that data will be amplified by AI over time. Thus, it is important for institutions to be aware of the potential discrimination challenges that could arise under Title VI (race, color, national origin), Title IX (sex), and the Americans with Disabilities Act in response to the increasing uses of AI. This presentation will discuss the possible challenges that are likely to occur and offer solutions for institutions to enjoy the benefits of AI while avoiding litigation.
