Harvard University’s president, Claudine Gay, has resigned amid accusations of plagiarism and criticism for her comments on antisemitism at the university.

Facing mounting pressure, she stated in her resignation letter that it was in the “best interests” of Harvard.

Dr. Gay, the first black person and second woman to hold the position, served for six months. During a congressional hearing, her remarks on calls for killing Jews sparked controversy.

Allegations of plagiarism in her academic record further fueled scrutiny. While Harvard’s board found citation issues, they stated no violation of research misconduct standards.

This development has stirred debate and concern about leadership at the prestigious Ivy League institution.
