Harvard Will Investigate Sexist 'Scouting Report'

November 2, 2016

Harvard University President Drew Faust has ordered a full investigation into the "scouting report" in which members of the men's soccer team circulated rankings of the women's team members, complete with sexist comments of their appearance and crude remarks about them. Since The Harvard Crimson revealed the practice of making the report, many at the university have been speaking out against it.

In a statement Tuesday to The Boston Globe, Faust said, “I want to ensure not only that such actions do not happen again, whether on men’s soccer or any other Harvard team, but also that all members of our community fully understand that such activities have never been, and never will be, acceptable at Harvard.”
