Harvard professor, Dr. Cornel West, has quit his job at Harvard University.
In a “candid letter of resignation”, dated June 30, on twitter, the professor of African American studies said he was resigning with “absolutely no regrets” after four years of service at the Massachusetts-based Harvard Divinity School. In March, he had announced he will be leaving Harvard because it did not give him tenure.
As the controversy continued, not much was revealed then about what exactly forced the popular professor’s resignation.
With Dr. West, 67, now sharing his resignation letter on Twitter with this post:
This is my candid letter of resignation to my Harvard Dean. I try to tell the unvarnished truth about the decadence in our market-driven universities! Let us bear witness against this spiritual rot! pic.twitter.com/hCLAuNSWDu— Cornel West (@CornelWest) July 13, 2021
