The US Supreme Court has just issued a ruling to further curtail considerations of race in university admissions at both public and private colleges, reversing decades of legal precedent and creating new challenges in the efforts to diversify campus student bodies. But what specifically does the ruling outlaw? What is still allowed? What changes can we expect to see in light of the decision? And what mechanisms are still left for universities to meet diversity goals? Join us Monday, July 3 at 11am PT / 2pm ET, to hear from legal experts about the implications of this decision on university student bodies, its wider social significance, and what can be done to help universities and other institutions better reflect the diversity of our country.
