Columbia University was in the hot seat as House Republicans questioned four of its top officials on Wednesday for a hearing regarding antisemitism on campus.  

Columbia President Nemat Shafik, along with two members of the Board of Trustees and a professor, were questioned by the House Education and the Workforce Committee after missing the December hearing that became the downfall of other university heads.  

Shafik was invited to the December hearing which focused on antisemitism at Harvard University, the University of Pennsylvania (UPenn) and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), but was unable to make it due to previous travel plans.  

Watch Shafik’s prepared opening remarks in the video above.
