Harvard is currently facing a plethora of lawsuits, some against its admissions policies and some challenging its single-gender social group sanctions.
Bacow may not be sitting in court as Harvard defends its race-conscious admissions policies, but he receives daily updates — and he remains confident the University will win at trial's end.
Amid fiscal hurdles, Bacow — an economist by training — is examining the University’s financials at the macro level. He’s already looking ahead to when the next recession hits.
Bacow’s emails to students and alumni Wednesday marked his first missives directly addressing the suit.
In his email, Bacow included a link to an Institute of Politics website that helps students register to vote and request absentee ballots from their respective home states.
Just a few months into his tenure, University President Lawrence S. Bacow has a simple message for Harvard hopefuls: don’t apply if you’re not comfortable with the College’s social group penalties.
The brand-new president said he is “confident” Harvard will prevail in court when the suit goes to trial on Oct. 15, though he is unsure what the Supreme Court may do should the case come before the nation's highest judges.
