The June 2023 Supreme Court Decisions on race-conscious admissions have changed the landscape of recruiting students into colleges and have raised questions about the broader future of affirmative action in the United States. Northeastern colleagues and the audience discuss and debate creative paths forward on diversity, equity, and belonging in these contexts. Register to attend either in person or virtually, as well as request ASL interpreting services.

The Northeastern Reflects Civility Series offers regular opportunities to connect the campus in dialogue around issues related to conflict, civility, respect, and peace. The effort is a collaboration between the College of Social Sciences and Humanities, the School of Law, and the Office of Student Affairs. Understanding that by working together we can become pioneers in civic sustainability, the practice of civility engages a diversity of opinions, and in acknowledgment of the wrongs of the past, broadens personal networks, finds common ground in social action and can make the world a better place.
