The United States Supreme Court recently heard oral arguments on whether it is legal for universities to consider race as a factor in university admissions.

  • What is the case about?
  • What do the data show about admissions practices?
  • What would a ruling striking down race-based policies mean for universities?

This talk will examine these questions with three experts.

  • Peter S. Arcidiacono is the William Henry Glasson Distinguished Professor of Economics at Duke University and was the expert witness in the case against Harvard University. Professor Arcidiacono is also a UW-Madison PhD Econ Alumnus.
  • David Bernstein is a University Professor and the Executive Director of the Liberty & Law Center at the Antonin Scalia Law School in Arlington, Virginia. Professor Bernstein is the author of Classified: The Untold Story of Racial Classification in America (Bombardier Press 2022).
  • Adam White is a senior fellow at the American Enterprise Institute. He focuses on American constitutionalism, the Supreme Court, and the administrative state.
