Implications of Students for Fair Admissions v. Harvard and UNC
May 30, 2023
This June, the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) will issue a decision on the future of race conscious admissions based on two pending cases filed by Students for Fair Admissions, Inc. (SFFA) against Harvard University (Harvard) and the University of North Carolina (UNC). NASPA and the NASPA Public Policy Division are aware of ambiguity surrounding the upcoming decision, and the broader implications it may hold regarding institutional efforts relating to diversity, equity, and inclusion. We hope to provide some clarity by offering free informational briefings, featuring experts in the field, pre- and post- the SCOTUS decision. The first panel, held on May 30 from 12:00pm-1:15pm EST, aims to open up dialogue around this critical issue and provide recommendations for student affairs professionals to navigate the forthcoming decision effectively.
