[PODCAST] # 455: The Real Challenges of College Diversity – With Professor John Hasnas


John Hasnas is a professor of business at Georgetown's McDonough School of Business and a professor of law (by courtesy) at Georgetown University Law Center in Washington, DC, where he teaches courses in ethics and law. Professor Hasnas is also the executive director of the Georgetown Institute for the Study of Markets and Ethics. He joins me to contrast the lessons of two of his recent articles on two different types of diversity in higher education.
