C100 Webinar: "Race-Based Admissions and the Supreme Court: An Asian American Perspective"

  • October 12, 2023
  • 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM
  • Online (via Zoom)

In late June, the U.S. Supreme Court issued its ruling in two high-profile cases on race-conscious college and university admissions policies. This is the third time in the last two decades that the nation’s highest court has heard cases that challenge long-standing attempts to increase diversity on college campuses. The Court’s finding that these policies are unconstitutional will have significant implications on the Asian American community, including how Asian American students should prepare for the college application process.

On Thursday October 12, Committee of 100 (C100) will convene a discussion with experts from academia, law, and the media. Amy Qin, National Correspondent for The New York Times, will be the moderator. Panelists include: Gordon H. Chang, Senior Associate Vice Provost for Undergraduate Education and the Olive H. Palmer Professor in Humanities at Stanford University; John C. Yang, President and Executive Director of Asian Americans Advancing Justice (AAJC); Sally Chen, Education Equity Program Manager at Chinese for Affirmative Action (CAA).

This panel will cover the following key questions:

  • What role should race play among criteria to help determine admission into colleges and universities?
  • How do race-conscious admissions affect students from disadvantaged AAPI communities?
  • What is the role of race in diversity and inclusion?
