Each day more faculty, staff and administrators sign on to express their commitment to human dignity and equality. Please share these Statements of Solidarity with your friends and colleagues. Thank you.
I was heavily criticized when I made similar statements in 2013. I do not relish this vindication because it means an unknown number of students have been assaulted in the interim. Given that Harvard administrators must have known what I did, this is particularly heartbreaking. I hope someday to see an apology from the university president for what happened on her watch.
“Most of the final clubs are essentially institutions of rape,” one comment attributed to a senior male reads. “I understand that they are not technically affiliated with Harvard, yet it is mostly Harvard students that attend these clubs and the university chooses to turn a blind eye towards sexual crimes that take place in its back yard on a regular basis.”
