Harvard Corporation Launches Review

University’s highest governing body has begun effort to review its operations

But now, Faust said, is an excellent time to re-examine that effort.

“This is a time when everyone in the University is scrutinizing everything,” Faust said. “It seemed like a good time for the Corporation to ask these questions.”
