July 08, 2015

 

​ACE’s Center for Policy Research and Strategy will release its groundbreaking new report, “Race, Class, and College Access: Achieving Diversity in a Shifting Legal Landscape,” at a convening on July 21 from 8:15 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. in Washington, DC. The event also will be live streamed.

The report examines contemporary admissions practices at a range of selective four-year colleges and universities, especially in light of recent legal challenges to race-conscious admissions. It includes insight into evolving day-to-day practices employed by these institutions as they seek to enable and support access and diversity.
