VIDEO: After Affirmative Action: Collapsing the Infrastructure

National Association of Scholars

A Supreme Court decision against racial preferences in college admissions would go a long way toward restoring equality to American higher education. But it would be naive to assume that colleges and universities would completely stop using racial preferences if the Court ruled the current admissions scheme unconstitutional. Instead, they may simply become more subtle in their efforts to manipulate the demographics of incoming classes.

Is there a future where colleges and universities do not promote racially discriminatory practices in admissions? What might that look like, and how might we get there?

This event features Maimon Schwarzschild, a Professor of Law at the University of San Diego and author of numerous books; Richard Kahlenberg, a senior fellow at the Progressive Policy Institute and nonresident scholar at Georgetown University; and Randall Kennedy, a Professor of Law at Harvard University and author.
