Affirmative Action: Reflections on the Supreme Court and Educational Opportunity
Wednesday, July 5, 2023 12:30 pm EST
|The Supreme Court has handed down decisions on two critical cases: Students for Fair Admissions (SFA) v. President and Fellows of Harvard and SFA v. University of North Carolina. Both cases addressed whether and how universities can create racially diverse student bodies.|
What do we make of these decisions? How does Notre Dame, as an institution deeply informed by Catholic Social Teaching, move forward? What is the future of affirmative action – and racial equity – in higher education in general?
Join us for a discussion of the legal, moral, and social implications of the Supreme Court’s latest move on Wednesday, July 5, 2023 at 12:30 p.m. ET.
Presented by the Klau Institute for Civil and Human Rights, the Initiative on Race and Resilience, the Notre Dame Institute for Advanced Study, and the Office of Institutional Transformation.
