Harvard University to Discard “Master” Titles, Use “CEO” Instead

, Spencer Irvine, Leave a comment

Political correctness strikes again:

The heads of Harvard University’s undergraduate residential houses, formally known as “masters,” have unanimously decided they want to be called something that doesn’t remind them of slavery, The Harvard Crimson reports.

Perhaps “chief executive officer”?

That nod to the modern corporatized university was used to describe the Mather House masters, Christie McDonald and Michael Rosengarten, the Crimson said: They had updated the Mather website “sometime before last week” to list themselves as “chief executive officers.” (It has since been removed.)
