Here’s How Harvard Can Handle Its Reputation Crisis

In the wake of Claudine Gay’s resignation at Harvard, a troubling trend emerges, shedding light on a pervasive issue: leftist circles often fail to hold their own accountable, fostering an environment where wrongdoing goes unpunished.

Although relentless public backlash for her abhorent failure to condemn calls for Jewish genocide left Gay with no choice but to step down, she’s still set to continue receiving her nearly $900,000 annual salary indefinitely — similar to the golden parachute compensation package given to ousted UPenn president Liz Magill, as Young America’s Foundation’s New Guard exposed.

Harvard, once revered for its dedication to education, appears to be veering further and further toward indoctrination, perpetuating an environment of hate and division. Of course, it has been on this path for decades, but things are only getting worse. The former president’s role in sustaining this toxic environment emphasizes the necessity for the institution to redirect its focus toward imparting knowledge and appoint a unifying leader dedicated to protecting the interests of all students.

Gay’s appointment as president, despite countless instances of plagiarism, highlights a troubling tendency to elevate individuals based on superficial traits rather than merit. This situation underscores the importance of universities prioritizing meritocracy over characteristics such as race in hiring and admissions processes.

Restoring Harvard’s legacy requires a genuine commitment to hiring and admitting based on qualifications, regardless of skin color, sexuality, or “gender identity.”

It’s not hard – but it must be done. It’s the only way forward for what was once America’s most prestigious university.
