Building an Inclusive Community: Lessons for a Post-Affirmative Action Era

Date & Time

September 25, 2023, 1:00 PM - September 25, 2023, 2:00 PM



As a companion to the Affirmative Action in Higher Education Teach-Out, join Michigan Online for a live event on September 25, 1 PM, highlighting the experiences of experts in diversity, equity, inclusion, and justice (DEIJ) initiatives and college admissions at the University of Michigan, the lessons they’ve learned along the way, and what others can do to continue fostering diverse and inclusive communities in light of the recent Supreme Court ruling. Following their stories, you will be able to ask questions of the panelists.    The Affirmative Action in Higher Education Teach-Out is an online learning event in which you’ll learn the historical context of affirmative action and the role it has had in U.S. college admissions, explore case studies in states that previously banned affirmative action, and discuss the need for colleges and community members to be a part of building equitable educational opportunities for everyone.    Whether you are just beginning your DEIJ work or have been involved for some time, this event will offer strategies to stay motivated and engaged in building equitable opportunities for all.
