Creating A Diverse Class of Learners


Mark Henderson: University of California Davis

With the recent U.S. Supreme Court decision striking down race-conscious admissions in higher education, institutions are looking to California where the practice has been banned in public schools for nearly three decades. Over the past 15 years, UC Davis School of Medicine has tripled enrollment of students from historically excluded groups by developing an admissions model that prioritizes workforce needs and attention to the mission fit, lived experience and socioeconomic background of each applicant. Dr. Henderson will discuss lessons from UC Davis to assist educational institutions seeking to uphold a commitment to health and education equity.
