Showing of Love Free, or Die Documentary
7:00 PM-9:00 PM, SAS Auditorium Rm 2203 
Love Free, or Die is about a man whose two defining passions are in direct conflict: his love for God and for his partner Mark. Gene Robinson is the first openly gay person to become a bishop in the historic traditions of Christendom.  The film follows Robinson from small-town churches in the New Hampshire North Country to Washington’s Lincoln Memorial to London’s Lambeth Palace, as he calls for all to stand for equality – inspiring bishops, priests and ordinary folk to come out from the shadows and change history.|

Kick- Off:  Stand-up and be Counted Campus Veterans Recognition & Roll Call

Student Military Veterans are growing in number on college campuses and contribute to the diversity of our student body.

From Bakke to Fisher and Beyond: The Supreme Court’s Perspective on Diversity in Student Body Admissions.” 
3:00-4:00 PM, 434 Daniels Hall
In Regents of University of California v. Bakke (1978), Justice Powell authored an opinion declaring that the educational benefit from having a diverse student body was a compelling state interest that could justify considering race in admissions.  In June 2003, a majority of the Supreme Court concurred with Justice Powell’s opinion in cases involving the University of Michigan. Ten years later, in June 2013, in Fisher v. University of Texas, the U.S. Supreme Court left intact the core principle, embodied in its earlier decisions, that college and university admissions policies and practices that give consideration to an applicant’s race for the purpose of achieving diversity are a compelling State interest but instructed the federal district court to evaluate whether Texas’ program is narrowly tailored to achieve that objective. Take this opportunity to hear from university legal experts to gain understanding on Affirmative Action in Admissions and how it is currently used by universities.
