Columbia University to be investigated over handling of antisemitism on campus

Columbia University joins the House Committee on Education and the Workforce’s list of Ivy League schools under investigation for its handling of antisemitism on campus.

The announcement of the investigation into Columbia comes two days before Harvard’s final deadline to submit documentation to the Committee before facing a subpoena.

“An environment of pervasive antisemitism has been documented at Columbia for more than two decades before the October 7, 2023, terrorist attack,” Foxx’s letter to Columbia said. 

The letter outlines allegations of antisemitic assaults, harassment, and vandalism.
