This all-day conference explores contemporary debates involving diversity in higher education. In addition to examining the Fisher v UT case, panels explore race-based versus class-based affirmative action, achieving diversity through race-neutral admissions plans and the ripple effects of diversity in higher education. Noted Princeton sociologist Marta Tienda, who has studied Texas’ Top 10% law, delivers the keynote address.
Presented by the Law School’s William Wayne Justice Center for Public Interest Law, Texas Journal on Civil Liberties & Civil Rights, and Civil Rights Clinic. Co-sponsored by the 2014 Heman Sweatt Symposium on Civil Rights and the Division of Diversity and Community Engagement.
