Announcing Our Podcast, Curriculum Vitae

National Association of Scholars

Today the National Association of Scholars releases the first episode of Curriculum Vitae, a weekly podcast hosted by NAS President Peter Wood.

Curriculum Vitae will introduce listeners to key people and issues in higher education—as well as some of the important ideas, books, works of art, and intellectual disciplines that higher education today too often ignores. Peter Wood will interview professors, policy experts, artists, writers, and other key figures who seek to rebuild the cultural and intellectual excellence that higher education needs.

In this first episode, Peter Wood sits down with appellate attorney Dennis Saffran to discuss Students for Fair Admissions v. Harvard, a lawsuit alleging that Harvard’s admissions practices involve discrimination on the basis of race. They review the evidence suggesting that Harvard engages in discriminatory behavior—and discuss why racial identity should play no role in determining who should or should not be admitted to college.
