Last month, Harvard University finally got a public statement correct. It released a "Report on Institutional Voice in the University" committing to refrain from issuing empathy statements on matters "not relevant to the core function of the University." 

Corporate America should learn from Harvard and do the same. 

If followed, Harvard will no longer make official comments, which it has in the past, on issues ranging from racial injustice, to the overturning of Roe vs. Wade, to the Russian invasion of Ukraine, to the Oct. 7 Hamas attacks in Israel. 

The reason is simple: "Harvard isn’t a government," Noah Feldman, a Harvard law professor and a co-chair of the committee that developed the recommendations explained in an interview. "It shouldn’t have a foreign policy or a domestic policy."
