Pursuing Excellence: Diversity In Higher Education
Thomas Jefferson School of Law

This conference brings together leading academics, educators, institutional leaders, and policy makers to examine how diversity in institutions of higher education affects and is inspired by students, faculty, and leaders. The conference will highlight a number of critically important topics including facilitating educational access for undocumented students, challenges to developing and nurturing a diverse educational environment, the importance of training students in professional programs (including medicine and law) to serve diverse populations, and attacks on affirmative action ranging from Prop 209 to the current U.S. Supreme Court case Fisher v. University of Texas.
