Regarding letters of recommendation

December 13, 2017
To students regarding letters of recommendation: Please know that I will happily continue to support your applications to professional and graduate schools, job openings, and fellowships, but only those fellowships where I have a free hand to decide who I will support. For Harvard College students, this means that beginning with the Class of 2021, I will no longer write in support of applications for any fellowships or awards covered by Harvard’s so-called social group sanctions, irrespective of whether an individual student belongs (or has belonged) to such a group or not.
