N.Y. Times Covers Professor Soucek's Stanford Panel on DEI Statements

In a March 7 opinion column, the New York Times’ Pamela Paul reported on a Stanford panel discussion featuring Professor Brian Soucek and other scholars. The participants debated the use of diversity, equity and inclusion statements in faculty hiring decisions.

“We all had the shared view that diversity and inclusion are good but that there are legitimate concerns about how we promote these things,” Soucek told Paul after the panel ended.

Professor Soucek’s primary teaching and research interests are antidiscrimination law, civil procedure, constitutional law, and refugee/asylum law. He holds a J.D. from Yale Law School and a Ph.D. from Columbia University. He has clerked for U.S. District Court Judge Mark R. Kravitz in Connecticut, and Judge Guido Calabresi of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit. Professor Soucek is a UC Davis Chancellor’s Fellow.
