Professor Harpalani Quoted Extensively in The Boston Globe

September 15, 2017

Professor Vinay Harpalani was recently quoted extensively in an article published in The Boston Globe. The article, “The majority of Harvard’s incoming class is nonwhite” can be accessed here.

The article centers on the diversity of Harvard University’s freshmen class. “Of the freshmen students admitted to Harvard this year, 50.8 percent are from minority groups, including African-Americans, Hispanics, Asian-Americans, Native Americans, and Native Hawaiians. That’s up from 47.3 percent last year, according to the university.”*

Professor Harpalani teaches constitutional law, civil procedure, and employment discrimination at Savannah Law School. He is an exemplary person to comment on this subject matter as his scholarship examines race-consciousness from both constitutional and interdisciplinary perspectives. Professor Harpalani’s writings cover a variety of topics, including race-conscious university admissions, the educational benefits of diversity, racial ambiguity, South Asian American racial identity, and the “acting White” phenomenon.

If you have any questions or wish to discuss this topic further, you are encouarged to reach out to Professor Harpalani at vharpalani@savannahlawschool.org. The article is a worthy read and all members of the Savannah Law School community are encouraged to access the link above. As always, thank you, Professor Harpalani, for your contributions to the legal community!
