This chapter presents a speech by former Stanford University president Gerhard Casper on October 4, 1995, on the issue of affirmative action. He focuses on the specific subject of college admissions at Stanford. He says that all applicants receive careful consideration, and the admissions review takes the individual circumstances of the applicant into consideration. These efforts aim at a class characterized by diversity in terms of academic interests, artistic and athletic accomplishments, leadership qualities, and ethnic and social backgrounds.
