The Diversity Bargain Professor Natasha Warikoo talked about her book The Diversity Bargain: And Other Dilemmas of Race, Admissions, and Meritocracy at Elite Universities, in which she examines what college students in the U.S. and Britain think about race and diversity programs. Professor Warikoo interviewed students at Harvard, Brown, and Oxford. She said that while many white students at Brown and Harvard understood the need for diversity in general, they often took a different stance if the diversity programs impacted their own advancement. Oxford students supported use of standard exams and merit as sole criteria for admissions into higher education. close
