Studying the Now: Affirmative Action
In a historic decision on June 29, 2023 the U.S. Supreme Court limited the consideration of race in college and university admissions across the country. As a College, Barnard has a distinct set of expertise and resources to address this decision as we uphold diversity, equity and inclusion as central to our academic mission. This prompts us to think about the broad implications for institutional diversity policies and practices and it presents an opportunity to come together to examine, interrogate, and respond to the issues raised in this ruling. We invite you to engage in a discussion about this decision, moderated by Barnard’s President Laura Rosenbury, Professor Melissa Murray, Frederick I. and Grace Stokes Professor of Law, NYU, and Jennifer Rosales, Vice President for Inclusion and Engaged Learning and Chief Diversity Officer, Barnard College.
The panel will take place from 12:30pm-1:30pm in the Event Oval, Diana Center, on September 26, 2023. Lunch will be available from 12-2pm.
