UT Austin Alum Pens Essay on Diversity in Higher Ed

image of bookLast summer, a federal appeals court panel ruled that UT Austin can continue using race as a factor in undergraduate admissions as a way of promoting diversity on campus.

In the wake of the Fisher v. University of Texas at Austin ruling, a group of scholars penned a series of essays examining campus diversity issues in colleges and universities across the nation. UT Austin alumnus Dr. Craig Carroll (Philosophy/Journalism, Ph.D., ’04) is among this group of distinguished authors who make the case for diversity as essential to higher education and society.

During his time at UT Austin, Craig participated in the IE Pre-Graduate School Internship, a program that connects undergraduates with faculty and graduate students to help them discover their academic interests.
