Reaffirmation of AST’s Commitment to Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Belonging
In light of the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in Students for Fair Admissions v. Presidents and Fellows of Harvard College, the AST recently published a position statement on diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging.
