Columbia University’s president and board co-chairs are scheduled to testify at a House Education and Workforce Committee hearing focused on antisemitism at the New York campus on April 17, as announced by the committee.

This hearing follows a previous request for the president to testify in December, which he could not do due to a scheduling conflict.

The upcoming hearing will provide an opportunity for the school’s leadership to address concerns about antisemitic assaults, harassment, and vandalism on campus, as well as the administration’s alleged failure to enforce policies protecting Jewish students.

Representative Virginia Foxx, the committee chair, emphasized the severity and frequency of antisemitic incidents at Columbia University, citing these as reasons for the committee’s interest in hearing from the university’s leadership directly. The committee has also requested documents from Columbia regarding its handling of campus antisemitism.

Columbia’s president, Nemat Shafik, and the co-chairs of the Board of Trustees, Claire Shipman and David Greenwald, will testify, providing insight into the university’s approach to addressing antisemitism on campus.
