Harvard professor says military members keep service quiet to avoid backlash from classmates

A Harvard professor warned Thursday that service members feel hesitant to disclose their military status to their classmates, bolstering the institution’s “abysmal” free speech ranking recently handed over by a First Amendment nonprofit.

“I’ve had military veterans that are enrolled here at Harvard College tell me that they think it’s better if they don’t tell their classmates or their faculty members before that they are members of the military,” Kit Parker, a bioengineering professor, told “Fox & Friends First.” 

“Obviously, it’s impacting the way we design and deliver courses to our students. I think it’s up to the faculty member ultimately as to how much risk they want to assume when they teach a course, or they make a public statement.”
