Harvard Condemned By Congress Alumnus: ‘This Is A Moral Failure Of Harvard’s Leadership’

via Harvard University

Rep. Elise Stefanik criticized Harvard’s decision to support President Claudine Gay despite her comments on the context of calls for the genocide of Jews.

Stefanik condemned Harvard’s leadership and the only update to the code of conduct, allowing a plagiarist as president.

There were demands for Gay’s removal, with some claiming Harvard lost donations due to her response to Hamas’s attack on Israel. (Trending: Hunter Biden’s Own Memoir Is Coming Back To Haunt Him In Criminal Trial)

“There is a reason why the testimony at the Education Workforce Committee garnered 1 billion views worldwide, and it’s because those university presidents made history by putting the most morally bankrupt testimony into the Congressional Record, and the world saw it,” Stefanik said.

“As a Harvard graduate, I’m reminded of Harvard’s motto, Veritas, which goes back – and it’s older than the founding of our country, it goes back to the 1640s.”

“In addition, the motto was Veritas Christo et Ecclesiae – Truth for Christ and the Church.”

“Larry Summers, who was president of Harvard when I was an undergrad, talked about the meaning of Veritas is divine truth, moral truth. Let me be clear. Veritas does not depend on the context,” Stefanik added.

“This is a moral failure of Harvard’s leadership and higher education leadership at the highest levels, and the only change they have made to their code of conduct, where they failed to condemn calls for genocide of the Jewish people, the only update to the code of conduct is to allow a plagiarist as the president of Harvard.”

Harvard’s board reaffirmed support for Gay, emphasizing open discourse and academic freedom.

“In this tumultuous and difficult time, we unanimously stand in support of President Gay,” the Fellows of Harvard Corporation wrote.

“At Harvard, we champion open discourse and academic freedom, and we are united in our strong belief that calls for violence against our students and disruptions of the classroom experience will not be tolerated.”

“Harvard’s mission is advancing knowledge, research, and discovery that will help address deep societal issues and promote constructive discourse, and we are confident that President Gay will lead Harvard forward toward accomplishing this vital work.”

The Corporation also addressed allegations of inadequate citation in Gay’s academic writings.

Amid the controversy, UPenn’s president resigned, while MIT expressed full support for its president.
