The Supreme Court, Race-Conscious Admissions, and the Campus Fallout

This event has passed.

Race and higher education are at the center of two U.S. Supreme Court cases against Harvard and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, challenging race-conscious admissions. With a decision expected in the spring of 2023, whatever the outcome, colleges and universities will be expected to respond.

This panel of experts will discuss how colleges can prepare their campus for the difficult questions and conversations about race that these rulings will make front-and-center.
