Harvard University President Claudine Gay responded to allegations of plagiarism, stating she stands by her work.

Journalist Christopher F. Rufo outlined three instances of alleged plagiarism in her dissertation.

Pressure for her removal has increased, with billionaire Bill Ackman and others finding the allegations credible. (Trending: Tucker Carlson Reveals ‘Secret’ Project He’s Been Working On For Months)

“I stand by the integrity of my scholarship,” Gay said.

“Throughout my career, I have worked to ensure my scholarship adheres to the highest academic standards.”

“When you paraphrase, your task is to distill the source’s ideas in your own words,” Rufo said, citing Harvard’s own policies.

“It’s not enough to change a few words here and there and leave the rest; instead, you must completely restate the ideas in the passage in your own words.”

“If your own language is too close to the original, then you are plagiarizing, even if you do provide a citation.”

Harvard alum and billionaire Bill Ackman said Rufo’s accusations were “credible.”

“I asked a senior member of the [Harvard] faculty to examine the below allegations of plagiarism against President Gay,” Ackman wrote.

“The faculty member found them to be credible.”

The National Association of Scholars called for her removal, citing “shoddy professional work,” “record of plagiarism,” and “promotion of racist policies.”

“The esteemed group notes Gay’s ‘shoddy professional work,’ ‘record of plagiarism,’ and ‘promotion of racist policies,’” Rufo said.

“Momentum is building.”

Additionally, Gay has faced criticism for her response to Harvard students’ pro-Hamas protesting.
