The University of Cape Town is debating whether or not an “elitist version of race-based affirmative action” in admissions is useful in overcoming the legacy of apartheid and creating a new, more just South Africa.

The debate, itself, as discussed in the New York Times, is certainly not unusual. What is unusual—and commendable—is that the contributions to the debate are posted on the University of Cape Town web site. It’s a kind of vibrant, open, public discussion that universities elsewhere in the world would do well to emulate.
