All Sides with Ann Fisher

Affirmative Action and Academic Diversity

11:00

Abigail Fisher's affirmative action lawsuit against the University of Texas Law School has drawn attention to the question of on-campus diversity. The US Supreme Court determined Fisher's case is best decided by a lower court, and this hour we'll examine the Court's (non-) decision. We'll talk about how diversity is measured, and what its value is in an academic setting.
