VIDEO: Neo-Segregation and the Institutionalization of Racial Preferences

National Association of Scholars

Most discussions of racial preferences in higher education focus on their role in the admissions process, in which applicants’ chances of acceptance vary based solely on the color of their skin. But these discriminatory practices carry over into other aspects of campus life as well, as they encourage students to think of themselves in exclusively racial categories.

How did the institutionalization of racial preferences in college admissions lead to neo-segregation on campus today? When students are increasingly self-isolating in racial enclaves, what does that mean for the future of higher education?

This event features Robert Maranto, 21st Century Chair in Leadership at the University of Arkansas; Peter Kirsanow, a Commissioner on the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights and a Partner at Benesch law firm; and Peter W. Wood, President of the National Association of Scholars.
