Sex offender Jeffery Epstein had major connections to Harvard and here’s how.
According to multiple reports Epstein donated over $9.1 million and $6.5 million of that went towards the evolutionary dynamics faculty.
After Epstein’s big donations the evolutionary director Martin Nowak gave Epstein his own office on campus in which Epstein visited over 40 times between 2010 and 2018.
Epstein was also giving other privileges such as key codes, and unlimited access to the building too.
Harvard has now shut down the Evolution Center and has barred Nowak for only two years!

The Daily Mail covered the sickening story and dropped these details:
Harvard University’s program for evolutionary dynamics is to close after an inquiry into ties between its director, Martin Nowak, and sex offender Jeffrey Epstein.
According to the university, the mathematics and biology professor violated several university policies through his contacts with Epstein, including giving the disgraced wealthy financier an office on campus which he visited more than 40 times between 2010 and 2018.
Epstein, 66, was charged with sex trafficking in 2019, shortly before he was found dead in his cell in the Metropolitan correctional center in New York. Epstein had faced an indictment accusing him of running a sex-trafficking ring of underage girls, some as young as 14.
Nowak will be barred from starting new research or advising students for at least two years, according to the university. The sanctions come almost a year after Novak was suspended following a university review that found he had extensive, previously unreported contact with Epstein.
The Program for Evolutionary Dynamics at Harvard will close.
In addition, Martin Nowak is mildly punished for his connections with Jeffrey Epstein. https://t.co/pzKCflhybQ

Harvard Magazine got the scoop too:
In an email sent this afternoon to faculty members, graduate students, and postdoctoral fellows in the departments of mathematics and organismic and evolutionary biology, and the Program for Evolutionary Dynamics, Faculty of Arts and Sciences (FAS) dean Claudine Gay announced disciplinary actions against Martin Nowak, professor of mathematics and biology, stemming from his connections to sex offender Jeffrey Epstein. Those connections were spelled out in a 2020 report: between 1998 and 2008, Epstein made gifts of $6.5 million to the Program for Evolutionary Dynamics, which was run by Nowak. (That figure made up the largest share of the $9.1 million in total gifts that Epstein donated to the University during that period.)
“Following a thorough review by the FAS, in which Professor Nowak had the opportunity to participate,” Gay wrote, “Professor Nowak’s actions were found to have violated several FAS and Harvard policies,” including professional conduct, campus access, and guidelines for responding to requests for endorsements.
In her email, Gay announced that the Program for Evolutionary Dynamics would be shut down and that Nowak would no longer hold an appointment in the department of organismic and evolutionary biology.
Harvard only put a two year sanction on Professor Nowak for knowingly allowing a sex offender to have his own office on campus.
That’s completely insane, his punishment should be more severe than that.
