Josh Goodman '12 blogs about race and affirmative action in The Huffington Post
Senior Josh Goodman has written an opinion piece about the role of race in college admissions in today’s edition of The Huffington Post.
Goodman is a senior psychology major and race and ethnic studies minor. In addition to his research on the relationship between LGBT stigma and mental health outcomes, he’s the web content editor for The Pioneer.

If we strive toward such a system, colleges can consider racial inequalities without making decisions based upon race in and of itself.”
