Former University of Pennsylvania trustee Vahan Gureghian is demanding the resignation of Liz Magill, the school's president, due to growing backlash from powerful donors over the handling of allegations of antisemitism on campus. Gureghian, a charter-school magnate, believes that Magill is unfit for her position and warns that the donor backlash will only worsen. Several high-profile donors have already withdrawn their funding from the university, criticizing Magill's response to the Palestine Writes Literature Festival, which featured speakers with a history of antisemitic remarks. Gureghian himself resigned from the board of trustees in protest of the university's response to the festival. The controversy surrounding the festival has led to a debate over free speech and antisemitism, with vocal supporters and opponents of the event. Magill has condemned antisemitism and affirmed the university's commitment to combating hate, while the board of trustees has expressed support for Magill and her leadership team.
