Conservative activist Christopher Rufo and journalist Christopher Brunet have raised concerns about potential plagiarism in Harvard President Claudine Gay’s Ph.D. dissertation.

They claim that sections of the dissertation violate Harvard’s academic integrity policies by using verbatim language without proper citation.

The dissertation allegedly borrows from various sources without adequate acknowledgment, including using entire paragraphs and sentences without quotation marks or citations.

“As evaluated under the university’s plagiarism policy, the paper contains at least three problematic patterns of usage and citation,” Rufo stated.

“She uses their verbatim language, with a few trivial synonym substitutions, without providing quotation marks.”

Gay “does not explicitly acknowledge that Appendix B is entirely grounded in King’s concepts, instead passing it off as her own original work,” Rufo said.

“Gay takes entire phrases and sentences directly from King’s book, without any citations or quotation marks.”

“In total, Gay borrows material from King in at least half a dozen paragraphs,” he added.

This comes amid existing controversy surrounding Gay’s leadership and her response to antisemitism on campus.

The situation has led to mounting pressure and calls for resignation from university presidents.
