What policies and practices are most effective when it comes to race-conscious admission? And how do recent lawsuits — including the ongoing Harvard case — affect the ability of colleges to promote diversity?
An Oct. 24 webinar hosted by the National Association of College and University Attorneys (NACUA) will address those questions and more. The two-hour program is aimed at university counsel who advise institutions, but is also open to admission professionals and others who are involved in student enrollment and retention. The webinar is presented in cooperation with NACAC.
Speakers include Art Coleman, a managing partner and co-founder of EducationCounsel; Shannon Gundy, director of undergraduate admissions at the University of Maryland, College Park; and Alexandra Schimmer, deputy general counsel for The Ohio University.
The webinar kicks off at noon (ET). The cost to register is $265.
