This publication provides guidance on legal and policy underpinnings for developing and evaluating sustainable, mission-driven, diversity-related policies and practices.

OVERVIEW AND BENEFITS


Drawing from real experience and applicable regulations and court rulings, this publication can guide collaboration and discussions around the development and maintenance of diversity-related policies.

 

This second edition includes updated material based on the U.S. Supreme Court’s 2013 decision in Fisher v. University of Texas. More than just a legal update, this publication provides additional insights into relevant facets of law, policy, and research to reflect the current challenges facing medical schools.

 

A new chapter helps schools explore the necessity of their race-conscious policies and practices, and a new appendix focuses on operational questions to consider when pursuing race-neutral strategies. Readers will:

  • Gain tools and insights for concerted, schoolwide diversity initiatives.
  • Learn how to overcome the challenges and missteps that hinder diversity efforts.
  • Establish clear communications and decision-making channels with stakeholders.
  • Achieve the educational and health care-related benefits that come from a diverse student body.
