Not the administration, but the students are pushing for this! Campus Reform with the latest:

Students at the University of Minnesota (UM) are pressuring the administration to institute special training for admissions faculty aimed at reducing “implicit biases” that the students claim is hindering efforts to increase diversity.

Nicholas Goldsmith, president of the Council of Graduate Students (COGS), a student government organization, told The Minnesota Daily that many students have suggested that the group’s platform for the upcoming school year should include efforts to promote “bias training” for admissions officers at the school’s various colleges.
