Harvard Retains Ex-President Accused of Plagiarism as Teacher

A former president of Harvard University, Claudine Gay, who was removed from her leadership position due to allegations of plagiarism, will be retaining a faculty position and will continue to teach a graduate-level independent study class. The decision to keep Gay on as a faculty member despite the criticisms of her scholarly work has raised concerns about the school’s standards.

Gay will receive a substantial salary for her teaching efforts, despite resigning from the presidency following ongoing accusations of plagiarism and criticism of her handling of campus antisemitism. The College Fix reported that the university did not respond to inquiries about Gay’s teaching schedule or her plans for the future, including whether she will address the plagiarism allegations that led to her resignation.

Earlier this year, it was reported that Gay had the shortest tenure in the university’s history as president, as complaints alleging plagiarism in her previous work surfaced. Additionally, her response to campus antisemitism drew criticism when she appeared before lawmakers and showed a lack of concern for the surge of anti-Israel and anti-Jewish sentiments following a violent incident in Israel.

The decision to retain Gay as a faculty member and allow her to continue teaching raises questions about the school’s commitment to upholding academic integrity and addressing allegations of plagiarism.
