The Supreme Court and the End of Affirmative Action / Greg Stohr

Other - Lecture/Discussion

Thursday, February 7, 2013
7:00 PM-9:00 PM

Dana Commons

By the middle of 2013, the U.S. Supreme Court in all likelihood will declare that affirmative action is living on borrowed time, at least when it comes to the nations selective universities. With the Supreme Courts blessing, those institutions have been considering race as an explicit factor in admissions for almost a half century, with an eye toward ensuring racial diversity. Greg Stohr will discuss how the current Supreme Court is forcing universities to rethink profound questions, including why they care about diversity. Strohr has covered the U.S. Supreme Court for Bloomberg News and Bloomberg Businessweek since 1998.
