Last month, the Supreme Court of the United States rejected the use of racial preferences in college admissions. The battle to eliminate these unjust, discriminatory admissions practices has long been a goal of the National Association of Scholars (NAS). In the 36 years since its founding, NAS has worked alongside its members and allies to fight racial discrimination in state houses, at the ballot box, and in the courts.
With that in mind, we’d like to invite you to a special discussion on the role that NAS and its allies have played to bring about the end of racial preferences. We will also discuss the future of college admissions, how colleges and universities are likely to evade the ban on racial preferences, and what role NAS can and will play in these important fights.
This event features Gail Heriot, a Professor of Law, University of San Diego and member of the U.S. Civil Rights Commission; Adam Kissel, a Visiting Fellow in The Heritage Foundation’s Center for Education Policy; and Peter Wood, President of the National Association of Scholars. The discussion will be moderated by Keith Whitaker, Chairman of the NAS Board of Directors.
