Harvard Task Forces Issue Recommendations to Combat Campus Bias #

Two presidential task forces at Harvard have released preliminary reports outlining recommendations to address antisemitism, anti-Muslim, anti-Arab, and anti-Palestinian activity on campus. The reports were a response to violent protests and a rise in hateful speech against various communities after recent conflicts in the Middle East. The task forces emphasized the need for Harvard to regain trust with students and faculty by promoting diversity education, fostering multiple perspectives, and clarifying the university’s values. The groups also suggested measures to combat discrimination, improve disciplinary processes, and support Jewish and Muslim students on campus. Harvard’s interim president acknowledged the recommendations.
