VIDEO: Race in Higher Education: Persecuting Dissent

National Association of Scholars

Racial preferences have become ingrained in American higher education, transforming not only the admissions process but also the ins and outs of campus life. Despite the pervasive effects of these policies, the academy has declared them untouchable and works quickly to silence anyone who questions its discriminatory practices. How do the elites at American campuses punish those who espouse heterodox views on racial preferences? What can be done to change this?

This webinar features Amy Wax, Robert Mundheim Professor of Law at the University of Pennsylvania; Bruce Gilley, Professor of Political Science at Portland State University; Joshua Katz, Senior Fellow at the American Enterprise Institute; and Robert Steinbuch, Professor of Law at the University of Arkansas.
