·1 min

The president and board chairs of a university have agreed to testify next month at a Congressional hearing on campus antisemitism. The House Education and Workforce Committee announced it will hold a hearing featuring the university president and the two co-chairs of the board of trustees. Last month, the House Education Committee widened its campus antisemitism investigation to include the university and demanded the school turn over documents. At a recent event, a student described how Jewish students were attacked on campus. The university has said they are committed to combating antisemitism.
