Harvard University's Undergraduate Council today joined students of Harvard Law School in calling for a "full and fair investigation" of sexual misconduct allegations against Brett Kavanaugh one day after the embattled U.S. Supreme Court nominee informed the Ivy League school he won't be back to teach his January course.
The council posted on Facebook this morning it stands in solidarity with Kavanaugh accusers professor Christine Blasey Ford, Deborah Ramirez and Julie Swetnick.
"At times like these, when survivors’ stories are called into question, we must come together to build collective power and hold our university accountable for supporting survivors, sanctioning perpetrators, and fighting the culture of sexual harassment," the post reads.
"We also stand with members of Harvard Law School who request a full and fair investigation into allegations against Judge Kavanaugh before he is allowed back on campus to teach."
The Harvard Crimson reported last night that Catherine Claypoole, dean for Academic and Faculty Affairs, had notified law students by email that "Judge Kavanaugh indicated that he can no longer commit to teaching his course in January Term 2019 titled "The Supreme Court Since 2005."
The FBI, meanwhile, is in the midst of its own investigation of sexual assault claims against Kavanaugh, as his confirmation hangs in the balance.
Both Kavanaugh and Ford testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee Thursday – Ford, insisting the judge tried to rape her at a house party in 1982; and Kavanaugh, angrily defending his honor and maintaining he is the target of a smear campaign.
