MIT Gives President ‘Full and Unreserved Support’ After Disastrous Antisemitism Hearing

by Mary Chastain at

President Kornbluth told Congress: “I’ve heard chants which can be antisemitic depending on the context when calling for the elimination of the Jewish people.”

Massachusetts Institute of Technology President Sally Kornbluth has come under fire after a disastrous antisemitism hearing in front of Congress.


The MIT governing board reiterated its support for Kornbluth:

The MIT Corporation chose Sally to be our president for her excellent academic leadership, her judgment, her integrity, her moral compass, and her ability to unite our community around MIT’s core values. She has done excellent work in leading our community, including in addressing antisemitism, Islamophobia, and other forms of hate, all of which we reject utterly at MIT. She has our full and unreserved support.
