Impact of Michigan case to be discussed at diversity forum
The U.S. Supreme Court recently heard arguments involving the affirmative
action admissions policies of the University of Michigan and is expected to
make a decision on the issue by late June.
The potential impact that decision will have on Iowa State is the topic of
the next campus conversation on diversity, set for Wednesday, April 9, in
the Memorial Union Sun Room.
President Gregory Geoffroy will moderate a panel discussion beginning at
12:40 p.m. and titled "Affirmative Action and the Supreme Court: What Does
It Mean for ISU?"
The panel will include Carla Espinoza, assistant VP for human resource
services and director of equal opportunity and diversity; Paul Tanaka,
university counsel; and Marc Harding, director of admissions. The panel
presentation will be followed by a question-and-answer session, and the
event will conclude at 2 p.m.
Those attending are invited to a buffet-style lunch served in the Great Hall
between 11:30 a.m. and 12:20 p.m. There is no charge for lunch, but lunch
registration is required. Faculty and staff should register online via
