“For nearly three weeks, the dean’s office and Harvard media relations have ignored repeated requests for clarification”
I imagine the way this will work is fairly simple. If it’s a speaker the left doesn’t like, the new rule will apply.
The College Fix reports:
Harvard refuses to explain the meanings of any terms in its new ‘moderator’ policy
Harvard University announced a new set of guidelines for student groups hosting “controversial” speakers last month.
For some events, they require a “moderator” to be present – someone who has the power to cancel speaker engagements they deem sufficiently hazardous.
How will the terms be defined and applied? The Ivy League school’s administration won’t say.
For nearly three weeks, the dean’s office and Harvard media relations have ignored repeated requests for clarification and even to provide the policy in full.
It was only Monday that The College Fix got any response from the school, when a receptionist answered the phone at the media relations office. She said to email a generic media contact and promised she would alert those who checked the account, but The Fix didn’t hear back Monday.
The new policy, which is based on a 1990 policy from one division within Harvard, would not even be visible to the public if a civil liberties group hadn’t obtained a copy.
The Foundation for Individual Rights in Education published a transcription from a “photograph of the original” published in this academic year’s edition of the “Recognized Student Organization Resource & Policy Guide.”
