Policy Fellow Linda Stamato discusses the potential consequences of the Supreme Court ruling against affirmative action and argues that even if affirmative action is eliminated, there are still ways to promote diversity in colleges and universities. Stamato suggests alternative approaches such as holistic admissions, socioeconomic factors, and outreach programs to ensure a diverse student body. She emphasizes the importance of maintaining diversity to foster inclusive learning environments and prepare students for a diverse society. Ultimately, Stamato encourages proactive measures to promote diversity in higher education, regardless of the outcome of the Supreme Court’s decision on affirmative action.
