Video: From Affirmative Action to DEI

National Association of Scholars

The corrosive effect of diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) ideology on American higher education is well-documented. But what is less commonly explored is how DEI first infiltrated university administrations, transforming from an armchair theory to an active force in the academy. Long before the first DEI office was formed, admissions offices across the country were using DEI ideology to justify the use of racial preferences in admissions decisions.

This webinar uncovers the connection between affirmative action and the current DEI regime on campus, exposing the way that racial preferences contributed to DEI’s takeover of American academia.

This webinar features Hal Arkes, Professor Emeritus of Psychology at Ohio State University; Nick Capaldi, Legendre-Soule Professor of Business Ethics Emeritus at Loyola University New Orleans; and Ward Connerly, civil rights activist, businessman, and former University of California Regent.

The event is moderated by David Randall, Director of Research at the National Association of Scholars.
