The Harvard Salient is the conservative student newspaper at Harvard University.


The Harvard Salient was founded in 1981, and is one of the oldest in a movement of conservative newspapers established in the Ivy League during the beginnings of the Reagan administration.

It publishes biweekly. It has often started heated campus debates, often owing to the "Back Page" feature, which features parodies of Harvard's politically correct culture.

Past editors include the Wall Street Journal's Naomi Schaefer Riley, the critic and New York Times columnist Ross Douthat, Commentary contributor Kevin Shapiro, University of Virginia law professor Caleb Nelson, Claremont McKenna College Professor Charles Kesler, and other up-and-coming conservative intellectuals.

The current faculty advisers are William R. Kenan, Jr. Professor of Government Harvey C. Mansfield and Martin Peretz Professor of Yiddish Literature and Professor of Comparative Literature Ruth Wisse.
