Affirmative Action

Affirmative Action: What It Is and What It Is Not

Affirmative Action has evolved in both meaning and application as understood by the popular press, in legal circles, and amongst educational and business entities. This presentation explores the historical roots of affirmative action, its evolution over time, and the way it is understood in legal, political and societal frameworks. This is a pro-affirmative action program that seeks to remove the negative connotations now given to the term and explain why those negative connotations exist.

If you would like to learn more about affirmative action, please come to one of our seminars or bring us to you. Email hrai@uidaho.edu for more information.
