“I will not tolerate delays and challenges to our research as Harvard’s Jewish students continue to endure the storm of anti-Semitism that has engulfed their campus,” Foxx said in a statement. “It is my hope that these subpoenas serve as a wake-up call to Harvard so that Congress does not tolerate anti-Semitic hate in its classrooms or on campus.”

Harvard leaders have until March 4 at 5 p.m. to deliver the requested documents.

The committee officially launched its research on Harvard last month after Republicans criticized three university leaders at a House hearing in December for anti-Semitism on campuses.

Lawmakers examined responses from former Harvard University President Claudine Gay, former University of Pennsylvania President Liz Magill and Massachusetts Institute of Technology President Sally Kornbluth.

Foxx issued his latest warning letter to the institution’s leaders last week, criticizing Harvard’s document production as “grossly insufficient.”

As of Wednesday, Harvard had sent the committee 10 document submissions totaling more than 3,500 pages that the school says address the committee’s investigation.

A Harvard spokesperson said Wednesday that the institution “has responded broadly and in good faith” and reaffirmed that Harvard is “committed to continued cooperation.”

But Foxx said Friday that the school had produced 2,516 documents related to the school’s anti-Semitism response, more than 40 percent of which were already publicly available.

“Quality, not quantity, is the Committee’s concern,” he said, adding that the school failed to produce documents in two of the four priority applications, and that the documents produced have “apparent omissions and questionable redactions.”

Foxx, in his letters, said he wants Harvard to produce minutes of board meetings following the Hamas attacks on Israel on October 7; all reports of anti-Semitic incidents on campus since January 2021; documents related to the findings and results of the school’s disciplinary process for anti-Semitism; and internal communication related to anti-Semitism among the institution’s leaders, among other requests.

It also wants documents and communications related to specific incidents, including the institution’s response to an open letter from student organizations on campus that blamed Israel for the Hamas attacks and sparked widespread outrage from prominent political alumni, including the former president of Harvard, Larry Summers, the senator. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and Rep. Elise Stefanik (RN.Y.).
