Listen to the Recording of the Access & Diversity Collaborative’s webinar “Unpacking Fisher II and Its Possible Implications for Institutions” conducted on July 14, 2016, at noon ET

On June 23, 2016, the U.S. Supreme Court (the Court) announced its second decision in Fisher v. University of Texas at Austin, which upheld the University of Texas's (UT) race-conscious admissions program under federal law. Notably, in affirming prior Court precedent, the decision also provided significant insight regarding policy development considerations and key evidence, which should inform the efforts of public and private institutions that consider race in enrollment practices moving forward.

This webinar includes discussion of the elements of the decision as well as its potential implications for other institutions.
