Leadership as Mission Critical: Latinas/os, the Military, and Affirmative Action in Higher Education
Ledesma, María C.
Journal of Hispanic Higher Education, v16 n2 p123-143 Apr 2017
By focusing on the U.S. military's support of affirmative action in recent affirmative action cases, this conceptual article posits that there are lessons to be learned from the military by postsecondary scholars, practitioners, and policy makers who support race-conscious policies in higher education. This suggestion rests on two points--first, the military's explicit focus and reasoning for diversifying its leadership corps, and second, the military's explicit race-conscious approach to racial integration.
