After the Supreme Court Affirmative Action Ruling: Does Your Campus Need to Take Action?
December 2, 2103 1-2pm EST
Webinar hosted by the Civil Rights Project

The Supreme Court's 7-1 decision in Fisher v. University of Texas upheld the right of universities to pursue diversity, but the Court sent the case back to the lower court to determine whether the university's admissions policy was narrowly tailored and if it had demonstrated a sufficient exploration of race-neutral methods. This webinar will explore answers to these questions: 1) Does the decision requires any change in campus plans? 2) How can universities most strongly support their plans with the use of existing research? 3) What research can readily be done on your campus? Hear from national experts: James Ryan, Dean, Harvard Graduate School of Education; Rachel Moran, Dean, UCLA School of Law; Catherine Horn, Associate Professor, University of Houston, and Gary Orfield, Professor and Co-director, UCLA Civil Rights Project. This webinar is geared towards university counsels, admissions leaders, faculty and researchers interested in defending campus diversity at higher education institutions. Registration forthcoming. For more information, email
