Colleges are under pressure to hold accountable those who sought to overturn election

At Harvard University’s Kennedy School, more than a 1,000 students, alumni, and staff are urging administrators to cut ties with US Representative Elise Stefanik – an adviser for the school’s Institute of Politics – because of the New York Republican’s role in trying to overturn the election results even after a mob attacked the Capitol.

At the New England Law, Scott Brown, the new dean and until recently President Trump’s ambassador to New Zealand, is facing pressure to discipline a student who attended last week’s riot and posted video on his Facebook page of an angry crowd confronting officers at a barricade in front of the Capitol.

Across the country, college administrators are being called on to hold accountable students, faculty, and leaders who participated in the Capitol violence that occurred on January 6th.
