Just a week after a district court judge rejected claims that Harvard University intentionally discriminates against Asian American applicants, Julie J. Park, associate professor of education at the University of Maryland, College Park, talks with hosts Jon Fansmith and Lorelle Espinosa about what this decision means for the future of diversity in higher education.
They also discuss why Asian American students’ experiences don’t always fit with the “model minority” stereotypes and what institutions can do to serve students from diverse backgrounds.
