Many in America are divided regarding affirmative action in college admissions. While 60 percent of Americans admit they favor affirmative action for minorities, 70 percent believe college applicants should be judged solely on merit.* The issue has been brought to the courts several times, but the conversation continues. Join us for a panel discussion on the legal and social implications of affirmative action on campus.
