DEI Community Call: Grantee Selection Strategies and the SCOTUS Race-Conscious Admissions Decision
Many nonprofit funding organizations have been observing the United States Supreme Court’s Students for Fair Admissions, Inc. v. President and Fellows of Harvard College decision regarding race-conscious admissions, and wondering about the ways in which this decision could impact similar processes outside of higher ed, like grantee selection. While the Harvard and UNC decision does not apply beyond higher education admissions, it provides a good opportunity to explore different race status-neutral selection processes and practices. In this session, Amy Addams from the Association of American Medical Colleges will discuss the AAMC’s Holistic Review framework, which is allowable under the recent decision, and how it can be adapted for grantee selection processes. Amy will be joined by Leila Harrison, PhD, Vice Dean for Admissions, Student Affairs, and Alumni Engagement at the Washington State University Elson S. Floyd College of Medicine, who will discuss the process of implementing these selection strategies in her context. There will be time for Q&A with the presenters, so please come with your questions!
