TDM Talks: The Argument for Affirmative Action in University Admissions

Articles Nov 14, 2022

A statement by The Diversity Movement

On Oct. 31, lawyers from two elite universities argued before the Supreme Court, insisting that diversity on campus is essential, and the only way to achieve a culturally mixed student body is by considering race in the admissions process. But comments from the justices indicated that they weren’t swayed by arguments that championed diversity as a goal. Now, the Supreme Court seems poised to end affirmative action in higher education, a decision that will likely undermine diversity efforts at elite universities and eventually in the workplace.
