A Guide to Assist Higher Education with Race-Neutral Strategies in Support of Institutional Diversity Goals

LIVE FREE Webinar:  Monday, January 26, 2014 – 12-1pm Eastern  (registration deadline  Jan. 22)

Overview:

Colleges and universities inhabit different “leagues” when it comes to the use of race-conscious enrollment practices. Many use race-conscious policies and practices to achieve their mission-driven diversity goals. Some are forbidden from using race and ethnicity due to state laws. Others are permitted to consider race and ethnicity but choose not to do so. But all institutions have a common interest: identifying policies and practices that will create a dynamic, diverse, and successful student body.  The recent U.S. Supreme Court ruling in Fisher v. University of Texas at Austin and two new suits filed in late 2014 make this topic particularly important for institutions today.

On Monday, January 26, at 12-1 pm Eastern, the College Board’s Access & Diversity Collaborative will host a free webinar to explore the opportunities and challenges presented by race-neutral strategies.  The webinar will be grounded in a new ADC resource on race-neutral strategies, The Playbook: A Guide to Assist Institutions of Higher Education in Evaluating Race- and Ethnicity-Neutral Policies in Support of their Mission-Related Diversity Goals.   The Playbook and many other access- and diversity-focused resources are available for free download at the ADC’s website: http://diversitycollaborative.collegeboard.org/.
