Evidently there is still a bit of real diversity at Harvard. “The Faculty of Arts and Sciences voted down a motion designed to nullify the College’s penalties on single-gender social groups Tuesday, a major victory for administrators who have defended the policy against faculty criticism for almost two years<" Joshua J. Florence and Mia C. Karr reported in The Harvard Crimson on November 7, 2017. "At their monthly Faculty meeting on Tuesday professors voted by paper ballot on a motion introduced by former Dean of the College Harry R. Lewis ’68 stating that the College shall not “discipline, penalize, or otherwise sanction students” for joining 'any lawful organization.'” "130 professors voted against the motion, while 90 supported it."
