“On May 14, after three weeks of peaceful protest, Harvard students dismantled their solidarity encampment based on assurances from Harvard President Alan Garber that disciplinary bodies would act ‘expeditiously under existing precedent,’ with the goal that seniors would be able to graduate. Garber led students (and faculty advisers) to trust that Harvard’s Administrative (‘Ad’) Board, which enforces undergraduate academic regulations and conducts disciplinary processes, would be ‘guided by standard responses and considerations of equity.’ This, however, is not what happened.” (06/05/24)
