Dean of the Faculty of Arts and Sciences Claudine Gay said in an interview Thursday that the College could alter its admissions policies after an external investigation into Harvard’s head fencing coach, Peter Brand.
Just as Harvard was ready to saunter away from the quagmire that is Operation Varsity Blues, we were hit with an admissions scandal on our own front piste.
Harvard Will Train Athletics Coaches in Conflict of Interest Policy Following Investigation Into Fencing Coach
Harvard will train its athletics coaching staff on its conflict of interest policy in the wake of an investigation into head fencing coach Peter Brand for engaging in a real estate transaction with the parent of a current and then-prospective fencer.
The result was the highest finish for Harvard fencing since 2006, a year in which it won the tournament. The fourth place finish was the result of strong individual performances across the board.
With a dominating performance from both No. 2 men’s fencing and No.7 women’s fencing, the Crimson marked another tally in the win column.
In the bustling Southern Chinese city of Wuxi, over 7,000 miles away from Cambridge, Mass., senior co-captain Eli Dershwitz became the No.1-ranked men's saber fencer in the world.
