Nancy Cantor, Diversity, Higher Education
For many of us, certainly for me, it seems particularly appropriate to be reflecting today on the value of diversity in higher education from a podium at the University of Michigan. This is a place where many of us crafted a defense of diversity as a critical element of educational excellence in the Supreme Court cases of Gratz and Grutter. The State of Michigan is also a place that has now turned its legislative back on affirmative action to achieve diversity in higher education. Indeed, with the passage of Proposal 2, the State of Michigan joined with many other states represented here today, in calling on public higher education ・ and I would also include private higher education -- to find other ways to ensure this country・s founding principles ・ that we are ―One Nation Indivisible, with Liberty and Justice for All.‖
