Harvard’s interim President, Alan Garber, expressed concern over heightened tension on campus, citing recent issues including the departure of former President Claudine Gay amidst plagiarism allegations and her controversial appearance before Congress.

He emphasized the need to address antisemitism, Islamophobia, and bias, while promoting free expression and mutual understanding.

Garber called for unity within the Harvard community and expressed his dedication to the university despite challenging circumstances. (Trending: Trump Responds To Biden’s Bombing In Yemen)

“We have been through an extraordinarily painful and disorienting time for Harvard. Since I first arrived here as an undergraduate in 1973, I cannot recall a period of comparable tension on our campus and across our community,” wrote Garber.

“That tension has been exacerbated by concerns about how we address and combat antisemitism, Islamophobia, and other forms of bias; safeguard free expression; and foster a climate of mutual understanding,” he continued.

Garber encouraged having “a willingness to approach each other in a spirit of goodwill, with an eagerness to listen as well as to speak, and with an appreciation of our common humanity when we encounter passionately held but opposing convictions.”

“Our task is difficult yet essential, and we have much work ahead of us. Although I regret the circumstances that have me writing to you as your interim president, please know that I will serve with a dedication to the Harvard I know and cherish,” he concluded.
