The Legality of Race-Based University Admissions
March 21, 2023
The United States Supreme Court recently heard oral arguments on whether it is legal for universities to consider race as a factor in university admissions. What is the case about? What do the data show about admissions practices? What would a ruling striking down race-based policies mean for universities? The Center will examine these questions with two experts. Peter S. Arcidiacono is the William Henry Glasson Distinguished Professor of Economics at Duke University and was the expert witness in the case against Harvard University. Adam White is a senior fellow at the American Enterprise Institute. He focuses on American constitutionalism, the Supreme Court, and the administrative state.
