Note from the President Regarding Harvard Sanctions

Dear readers,

We at The Harvard Crimson have received a number of questions regarding the sanctions introduced by Harvard College earlier this month that ban undergraduate members of unrecognized single-gender social organizations from holding athletic team captaincies and leadership positions in all recognized student groups. We want to make it clear that this policy is not applicable to The Crimson.

The Crimson chose many years ago not to be formally recognized by Harvard, and our relationship with the University has not changed: The Crimson has always maintained its editorial and organizational independence.
