Diversity and the Practice of Interest Assessment
Robert F. Nagel spoke on "interest assessment" : the weighing by the United States Supreme Court of state interests against the US Constitution. He explored the Court's opinion in Grutter v. Bollinger , which held that the government has a compelling interest in diversity. In so finding, the Court declared that governmental preferences at odds with the Fourteenth Amendment are justified by educators' opinions that diversity is important.
Appearing: Katherine T. Bartlett, introductions; Robert F. Nagel, speaker.
