VIDEO: Anti-Asian Discrimination in College Admissions

National Association of Scholars

Every “plus” on one student’s college application translates to a “minus” on another student’s application. In the process of boosting the applications of so-called “underrepresented minorities,” admissions offices routinely penalize Asian-American applicants, dismissing their diligence and hard work as a “lack of personality.” How did the widespread discrimination against Asian-American students arise in American higher education? Why has the plight of these minority students been so disregarded by progressives?

This event features Wai Wah Chin, adjunct fellow at the Manhattan Institute and founding president of the Chinese American Citizens Alliance of Greater New York; Lance Izumi, Koret Senior Fellow and Senior Director of Education Studies at the Pacific Research Institute and author; and Devon Westhill, President and General Counsel at the Center for Equal Opportunity.

This event is moderated by Wenyuan Wu, Executive Director of Californians for Equal Rights Foundation and columnist for Minding the Campus.
