[JANUARY 16, 2024] – The State of Affirmative Action, The State of Belonging

Tuesday, January 16, 2024
5:00-6:00 pm ET
Hybrid: 909 Renaissance Park and Zoom
Registration required

This event is part of the Conflict. Civility. Respect. series. An educational series on civic sustainability for the Northeastern community hosted by Distinguished Professor Emeritus Michael S. Dukakis in conjunction with the Presidential Council on Inclusion and Diversity

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 will discuss and debate creative paths forward on diversity, equity, and belonging in these contexts.

This is a hybrid event that will be held in 909 Renaissance Park, Boston Campus and via livestream.
