Kathryn “Kat” A. Taylor ’80, a member of the Harvard Board of Overseers, resigned her post Tuesday in protest of what she called Harvard’s “failure” to “adopt ethical commitments” when investing its $37.1 billion endowment.
Susan L. Carney ’73 will succeed Scott A. Abell ’72 as president of the Board of Overseers while Margaret M. Wang ’09 will become the youngest president in HAA history, succeeding Susan Morris Novick ’85.
University President Drew G. Faust sent a letter Wednesday to a bipartisan group of lawmakers advocating on behalf of those affected by the Trump administration’s rollback of Temporary Protected Status protections.
"I worry [the legislation] represents an effort by Congress to regulate student life and the shape and character of private institutions in a way that threatens to undermine that diversity of choice and experience," Faust wrote.
Faust has formed a “review committee” to determine the exact “sequence of events” leading to the forcible arrest of a black undergraduate April 13 and to undertake a “systematic examination” of a wide variety of Harvard policies.
