Abstract

After the Supreme Court's decision in Fisher v. UT Austin, the stage has been set for judges to demand more specificity in the articulation of the protected diversity interest. Gone are the days when institutions of higher education could rely on the abstract concept of diversity to support efforts to enroll a diverse student body. Now higher education institutions will need to give serious thought to how they define the sought after diversity interest and how racial diversity improves educational outcomes and enhances the education that is delivered.
