Man Allegedly Solicited Donations at HKS for Charity Connected to ISIS

An unidentified man allegedly solicited donations at the Kennedy School of Government on Tuesday for what he said was a charity connected to the Islamic State.

“He has not been seen on campus since, and there does not appear to be a threat to the community at this time,” Kennedy School spokesperson Doug Gavel wrote in an emailed statement. Kennedy School Dean David T. Ellwood ’75 and Executive Dean John A. Haigh notified affiliates of the incident via email on Thursday.

Harvard University Police Department spokesperson Steven G. Catalano wrote in an email that police are investigating the incident and declined to comment further.
