The reputation of Harvard University, which took nearly 400 years to establish, has been called into question in just three months. The university's response to a terror attack on Israel, the poor performance of President Claudine Gay before Congress, and a plagiarism scandal involving Gay have all led to criticism from politicians and alumni. Venture capitalist Sam Lessin, a Harvard graduate, believes that the university has never been weaker and blames Gay for the problems. Lessin is attempting to get elected to the Board of Overseers to help fix Harvard. He points to a drop in early applications to the university and conversations with parents who are reconsidering sending their top students to Harvard as evidence of the university's weakness. Lessin also describes a culture of fear where people associated with the university are afraid to speak out. Harvard's board has expressed support for Gay, but some faculty members have urged the board to address the issues more directly. The pressure on Gay has been intensified by the plagiarism controversy, but experts are divided on what punishment she should receive. Despite calls for her resignation, Gay has received support from faculty members.
