Washington, D.C. - Congresswoman Elise Stefanik released the following statement following Education and the Workforce Chairwoman Virgina Foxx’s announcement that the committee served subpoenas to Harvard Corporation Senior Fellow Penny Pritzker, Interim President Dr. Alan Garber, and Harvard Management Company’s Chief Executive Officer N.P. Narvekar for failing to produce priority documents related to the Committee’s antisemitism investigation.

“Today’s historic subpoena of Harvard University was caused by the intransigent and failed leadership of Penny Pritzker and the Harvard Corporation. After refusing to take swift action in response to former President Claudine Gay’s morally bankrupt testimony, Harvard’s leadership has failed to address the antisemitic hate that has infected its campus. 

The House Education and the Workforce Committee will not stand idly by and this subpoena is a critical next step to holding Harvard accountable and ultimately ensuring Harvard is safe for Jewish students and faculty. I applaud Chairwoman Foxx for holding these failed institutions accountable.”
