The Wexner Foundation has decided to sever its 34-year relationship with Harvard University.
The foundation cited the university’s failure to take a clear and unequivocal stance on the Israel-Hamas conflict. The foundation accused Harvard’s leaders of being indecisive and non-committal in their response to a statement signed by over 30 student groups that placed full blame on Israel for the violence.
The partnership between the school and the Wexner Foundation, which supported Israeli public service professionals pursuing a master’s degree in public administration at the university, will come to an end. The current class of Wexner Israel Fellows will be the last to complete the master’s program at Harvard.
