- Pub. Date:
- Harvard Education Press
The essays in this volume represent the work of the leading scholars of affirmative action in higher education, and place the current crisis on campus in its larger context of historical discrimination and the legal battle for educational equity. After a generation of efforts to reverse the historic exclusion of minorities from their campuses, U.S. colleges and universities are facing a frontal attack on the programs, policies, and commitments born of these efforts. Chilling Admissions documents and examines their struggle to foresee the consequences of abandoning affirmative action in admissions and financial aid, and to devise viable alternatives for promoting and preserving campus diversity.
