Harvard President Claudine Gay Resigns Amid Controversy and Plagiarism Claims

Harvard University President Claudine Gay resigned amid plagiarism accusations and controversy over her testimony at a congressional hearing regarding calls for the genocide of Jews on campus.

Gay’s resignation came just months into her tenure, and her departure follows criticism for her responses during the hearing, where she was unable to definitively state whether such calls would violate the school’s conduct policy.

Gay later apologized for her remarks, acknowledging her failure to properly denounce threats of violence against Jewish students. The incident marred her early tenure at Harvard, prompting a House committee investigation into the university’s policies and disciplinary procedures, along with separate federal civil rights investigations.
