On April 12, 2016, the University Union, a student group that sponsors debates on campus at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, held a debate on affirmative action. Harvard law professor Randall Kennedy spoke in favor of racial preferences, and National Association of Scholars president Peter Wood opposed them. Owen Wiggins, president of the University Union, opened the debate, and professor of political science Dean Robinson moderated it.
