Harvard On Defense

, Malcolm A. Kline, Leave a comment

Some school newspapers are such creatures of the university administration that you can almost see the wagons being circled when you read them. “At a time when both Harvard and higher education face a hostile political climate marked by a high-profile lawsuit against Harvard, a tax on some university endowments, and criticisms of higher education’s efficacy to the average American, the capital campaign still managed to exceed expectations,” Kristine E. Guillaume and Jamie D. Halpe write in The Harvard Crimson.

Probably the only one of those that is not self-explanatory is the lawsuit, which we have written about, in which Asian-American students allege discrimination by Harvard.
