2018 has proved to be a significant year regarding cases and federal agency actions involving claims of race, ethnicity, and gender discrimination in higher education. The College Board’s Access and Diversity Collaborative (ADC) will host a webinar on Friday, Dec. 14 at 1 p.m. EST, on the 2018 Legal Landscape: Litigation and Agency Actions Regarding Federal Non-Discrimination Law in Higher Education.

This webinar will survey the year’s developments with an overview and synthesis of:

  • recent developments in federal court litigation involving Harvard University;
  • other cases percolating through the courts;
  • claims in recently-filed U.S. Department of Education Office for Civil Rights complaints; and
  • recent federal developments in the U.S. Departments of Justice and Education.

Presenters will reflect on these developments and provide insight regarding important actions postsecondary institutions may take to continuously build the necessary evidence base to sustain their diversity efforts. Based on these developments, presenters will offer insights into important higher education strategies that can advance mission-based institutional interests in ways that also mitigate legal risk.
