Harvard President Claudine Gay resigns

Harvard President Claudine Gay resigned Tuesday. She only served 6 months in the role, the shortest tenure of a Harvard president.

Gay faced criticism for her handling of free speech on campus at the start of the Israel-Gaza war. And more recently, has faced a slew of plagiarism allegations in recent weeks.
