Professor Chris Goodman Quoted in "Affirmative Action 'At Critical Juncture' as Supreme Court Weighs Two Cases" -- The National Desk
Professor Christine Chambers Goodman is quoted in the National Desk article, "Affirmative Action 'At Critical Juncture' as Supreme Court Weighs Two Cases." The article considers two Supreme Court affirmative action cases, involving Harvard University and University of North Carolina Chapel Hill, that could result in the scaling back or elimination of race as a factor in college admissions.
Excerpt from "Affirmative Action 'At Critical Juncture' as Supreme Court Weighs Two Cases"
The Supreme Court has upheld affirmative action in decisions since 1978.
While these two cases relate to higher education, legal experts say, it may not stop there.
"There will be ramifications because if affirmative action in higher education is overruled or if diversity as a compelling interest is overruled then there may be more challenges to voluntary affirmation action programs that companies and corporations may be . . . employing for their workplace,” said Prof. Goodman.
