Former university associate provost and practicing attorney Dr. Jim Castagnera will detail the current status of affirmative action at colleges and universities. You will learn what actions you must take at your institution.

Training Overview

Understand how affirmative action affects your institution.

Five years after the Supreme Court held in Fisher v. University of Texas that UT-Austin’s admissions process passed strict scrutiny, affirmative action remains a controversial subject in higher education, from admissions policies to hiring procedures. How you deal with Dreamers is also a factor impacting your admissions and hiring policies. Without a doubt, the Biden Department of Education will tackle these thorny issues in ways that will impact all of higher ed.

You need to understand the laws that define affirmative action and how they apply to your institution. Now is the time to review your policies and procedures to prepare for upcoming changes and clarifications from the DOE.
