College Presidents to Answer for Mishandling of Antisemitic, Violent Protests

Harvard, UPenn, and MIT Presidents will attend @EdWorkforceCmte’s hearing

On Tuesday, December 5, at 10:15 a.m., the Committee on Education and the Workforce, chaired by Virginia Foxx (R-NC), will hold a full Committee hearing titled “Holding Campus Leaders Accountable and Confronting Antisemitism.”

“Over the past several weeks, we’ve seen countless examples of antisemitic demonstrations on college campuses. Meanwhile, college administrators have largely stood by, allowing horrific rhetoric to fester and grow,” said Chairwoman Foxx. “College and university presidents have a responsibility to foster and uphold a safe learning environment for their students and staff. Now is not a time for indecision or milquetoast statements. By holding this hearing, we are shining the spotlight on these campus leaders and demanding they take the appropriate action to stand strong against antisemitism.”
