Diversity and Culture

Higher education institutions as well as student affairs administrators strive for a campus culture that fosters diversity and acceptance. Admissions standards and financial aid practices are two key areas that the institution must consider as they establish their desired culture. While discretion is afforded to institutions, departments have constraints when drafting and executing policies. Even with careful policy formulation, legal action can still be brought forward over admissions practices as evidenced in recent court cases. Select a court case about diversity or cultural inclusion on a higher education campus that was adjudicated within the last five years. Write a 500-750 word summary and analysis of the case, including the following: Title, citation of the case, and a summary of the pertinent facts of the case. Legal points of the case and the laws in question. The court’s ruling and rationale. Applicable laws and policies that govern diversity or cultural inclusion in the higher education community as it pertains to this case. How the principle of nondiscrimination pertains to diversity and culture on the higher education campus and was or was not a part of this case. Legal policy limitations regarding culture and diversity that may or may not have played a role in this case. The influence this case and the rulings have on your work as a future student affairs professional. Support your summary with 3-5 scholarly resources.
