  • Building an Agenda for Research on Affirmative Action and Diversity convened a Research Council to conduct a systematic and rigorous review of the current state of inclusion, affirmative action, and diversity-related research to identify gaps in the knowledge base, create synergy among leading researchers, and develop a plan to create a cumulative and comprehensive understanding that informs policy and practice. The Council examined emergent and future trends, key issues and directions in inclusion, affirmative action and diversity, and the implications for decision-making. This work was funded by the W. K. Kellogg Foundation.
