Harvard is the most powerful university in the United States. It will not change unless there is substantial public pressure from both inside and outside the university community. It has avoided dealing with sexual assault and sexual harassment for a long time and it knows how minimize the damage.
One thing is clear: Though the administration believes Harvard is “special”, the fact is, like any large institution, Harvard cannot investigate itself. Period. More so given decades of covering-up, obfuscating, minimizing and dividing victims who complained about this known sexual predator and others.
