The president of Harvard University, Claudine Gay, apologized in an interview with the school's student newspaper following criticism of her congressional testimony. Gay and other university presidents were condemned for not explicitly stating that calls for the genocide of Jewish people constituted bullying and harassment on campus. The apology came after the three university presidents testified at a House committee hearing on antisemitism on campus and faced criticism for not doing enough to ensure the safety of Jewish students. Harvard, UPenn, and MIT, along with other US academic institutions, have been criticized for their perceived inaction against antisemitism. Harvard is also under investigation for discrimination involving shared ancestry. During the congressional hearing, Gay, along with the UPenn and MIT presidents, did not clearly state that calling for the genocide of Jews would violate their code of conduct on bullying or harassment. Gay expressed regret for her words and acknowledged that she failed to convey her true beliefs. Gay has faced calls to resign, particularly from hedge fund billionaire Bill Ackman. UPenn President Liz Magill has also faced criticism and pressure to resign. A bipartisan group of US lawmakers sent a letter demanding the dismissal of Gay and the presidents of UPenn and MIT. Magill clarified her remarks but did not apologize for her testimony.
