The Latest on Summers: Students (Just Barely) Reject Their Own No-Confidence Vote

By March 24, 2005

Here is the latest on the Summers case from the Boston Globe. After the faculty’s vote of “no confidence” in Harvard President Larry Summers, the graduate students decided to have a vote of their own:

The graduate student vote of no confidence failed by a margin about as slim as last week’s vote by the faculty passed, with 699 opposed, 608 in favor, 90 abstaining, and 146 saying they needed more information.

The vote on the second motion passed by 945 in favor to 362 against, with 149 abstaining and 87 saying they needed more information.

Even Pyrrhus himself would not be proud of such a “victory.” The saga goes on.
