How should institutions be held accountable for racial diversity? One argument is that institutions should be held accountable through external policies like affirmative action. Alternatively, there is the position that institutions will act in good faith to implement diversity goals. Join us for a discussion with Rachelle Winkle-Wagner, associate professor of educational leadership and policy analysis, to examine this question, using policy discourse from the Texas legislature regarding 2009 changes to the Texas Top Ten Percent Plan as a case study.
Winkle-Wagner co-authored a paper on this topic with Dina C. Maramba and V. Thandi Sulè, who may join the discussion via Skype.
This event is part of the Furthering College Access and Opportunity spring speaker series, hosted by the Wisconsin Center for the Advancement of Postsecondary Education (WISCAPE) and cosponsored by the Center for Academic Excellence, the Wisconsin Collaborative Education Research Network, and the Wisconsin HOPE Lab.
