House GOP Threatens Harvard With ‘Compulsory Measures’ After ‘Inadequate’ Response To Antisemitism Probe

via Forbes Breaking News

The House Education and Workforce Committee is considering action against Harvard University for an inadequate response to an antisemitism investigation.

Committee Chairwoman Virginia Foxx criticized Harvard’s response and warned of potential compulsory measures.

The investigation stems from concerns over Harvard’s handling of antisemitism, including former President Claudine Gay’s testimony and allegations of institutional failures.

“Upon initial review, Harvard’s production to the Committee in response to its antisemitism investigation is woefully inadequate,” Foxx said.

“Rather than answering the Committee’s request in a substantive manner, Harvard has chosen to provide letters from nonprofits and student handbooks, many of which are already publicly available.”

“This is unacceptable. Harvard must produce the remaining documents in a timely manner, or risk compulsory measures,” she said.

“As you are aware, the Committee on Education and the Workforce (the Committee) is investigating Harvard University’s response to antisemitism and its failure to protect Jewish students. We have grave concerns regarding the inadequacy of Harvard’s response to the antisemitism on its campus,” Foxx wrote.

“While Dr. Gay has since resigned, Harvard’s institutional failures regarding antisemitism extend well beyond one leader. There is evidence antisemitism has been pervasive at Harvard since well before the October 7, 2023, terrorist attack.”

Harvard pledged cooperation with the inquiry and denounced antisemitism.

“Harvard is committed to cooperating with the Committee’s inquiry and providing information, including the submission made today, which addresses important questions raised by the Committee,” Harvard stated.

“We denounce any form of antisemitism in the strongest possible terms and are committed to the safety and well-being of our students. We intend to continue to engage with the Committee in a dialogue to respond to their ongoing requests.”

The fallout also led to the resignation of University of Pennsylvania President Liz Magill.

A group of Jewish students sued Harvard, alleging widespread anti-Jewish sentiment on campus.
