UPDATE: Foxx Announces Witness Changes to College Presidents Hearing on May 23

Today, Education and the Workforce Committee Virginia Foxx (R-NC) announced a new lineup of college presidents for the May 23 hearing titled “Calling for Accountability: Stopping Antisemitic College Chaos.” The presidents of Northwestern, Rutgers, and UCLA will testify in-person. The Presidents of Yale and Michigan—who were previously slated to testify—will now be called to appear  for transcribed interviews. 
On the witness changes, Chairwoman Foxx made the following statement: “Over the last several days, the presidents of Northwestern and Rutgers have made shocking concessions to the unlawful antisemitic encampments on their campuses. They have surrendered to antisemitic radicals in despicable displays of cowardice. As a result of these gravely concerning actions, the Committee believes it’s necessary to reevaluate the scope of the May 23 hearing and bring in the presidents of Northwestern and Rutgers—along with UCLA—to testify before the Committee. Yale and Michigan are by no means off the hook. Presidents Salovey and Ono will be required to appear before the Committee for transcribed interviews at a later date or risk deposition and subpoena.”
