Affirmative Action Is Wrong. There’s a Better Way to Make Campuses Diverse.

I am the daughter and granddaughter of Indian immigrants. In 1967, my father and grandmother came to the United States from Jhansi, a city in the north of India, to reunite with my grandfather who had arrived three years prior. This was around the time the Civil Rights Act was passed; my grandfather attended graduate school for psychology at DePaul University on a scholarship, with less than $100 in his pocket. In 1995, my mother came to this country, having just married my dad in an arranged marriage. Up to that point, she had never stepped foot on a plane, let alone left India; all she ever knew was in Kanpur.

The story of how my family arrived and found its way in America is a unique one that exemplifies diversity. But based on revelations from Students for Fair Admissions’ challenge to Harvard and the University of North Carolina’s race-conscious admissions policies, cases that have oral arguments before the Supreme Court on Monday, it seems neither of these schools would agree with me.

They, along with many other elite universities in the U.S., seem to have decided that because Asian American enrollment at their schools exceeds the Asian American share of the population, stories like mine don’t count as “diverse.” Instead, the stories of “underrepresented” racial minorities tend to count more as the diversity in which universities have a compelling interest, the rationale for racial preferences today.
