Board member resigns from Columbia over university's 'moral cowardice': report
Henry Swieca accuses the Ivy League institution of being 'significantly compromised by a moral cowardice that appears beyond repair.'
Henry Swieca has resigned from the Board of Columbia Business School. He accuses the Ivy League institution of being “significantly compromised by a moral cowardice that appears beyond repair.”
Columbia Business Assistant Professor Shai Davidai shared Swieca’s Oct. 30 letter on X. Campus Reform recently interviewed Davidai about anti-Semitism at the New York City University. Davidai said that Columbia had done “nothing” to make Jews safe on campus.

”With blatantly anti-Jewish student groups and professors allowed to operate with complete impunity, it sends a clear and distressing message that Jews are not just unwelcome, but also unsafe on campus,” Swieca writes.
In October, Campus Reform reported that a Jewish Columbia student was attacked outside the university library because the individual was known to be Jewish.
