Industry experts joined NACAC staff for a two-day forum as they unpack the U.S. Supreme Court’s opinion and discuss the design of admission policies moving forward. Now available on demand.

This forum assisted college counseling professionals in designing scholarships and other institutional aid that’s consistent with the ruling. Participants also gained a better understanding of how to eliminate structural barriers to equitable admission and design race-neutral strategies that achieve equitable ends.

Recordings are now available to registrants and can be accessed by the LMS for up to 6 months.

Topics include:

  • Unpacking the Court’s opinion
  • Admissions policy design
  • Designing scholarships and other institutional aids consistent with the ruling
  • Practices to eliminate structural barriers to equitable admissions
