Supreme Court ruling listening session

The campus community is invited to attend a listening session next week regarding the U.S. Supreme Court’s recent decision regarding the use of race in admissions.

Hosted by the Office for Diversity, Equity and Inclusive Engagement, the July 20 session on session seeks to provide an opportunity for faculty, staff and students to share their perspectives on the ruling, as well as ideas about how Case Western Reserve can continue to  build upon the university’s commitment to its core values of diversity and inclusion.

Among the questions participants may consider are: “What are the unique opportunities presented to us?” and “How can we continue to thrive while also respecting the rule of law?” 

The one-hour session starts at 11:30 a.m. Thursday, July 20, in the Tinkham Veale University Center’s Senior Classroom. The office will be ordering refreshments, and encourages those planning to attend to register in advance

Naomi Drakeford, University Health and Counseling Services director of clinical counseling, equity and inclusion, will attend the session with another counseling staff member. The two will be present to provide support or resources as needed.

This listening session will follow the law school’s July 17 webinar explaining the decision. More information about the 5:30 p.m. event can be found on this law school webpage.
