Meanwhile, Yale University and the University of Pennsylvania saw increases in early applications.

“President Gay’s failures have led to billions of dollars of cancelled, paused, and withdrawn donations to the university,” billionaire Bill Ackman wrote.

“I am personally aware of more than a billion dollars of terminated donations from a small group of Harvard’s most generous Jewish and non-Jewish alumni.”

Despite this, the Harvard Corporation expressed support for President Gay, citing her role in addressing societal issues and reaffirming the university’s commitment to combating antisemitism.

“As members of the Harvard Corporation, we today reaffirm our support for President Gay’s continued leadership of Harvard University. Our extensive deliberations affirm our confidence that President Gay is the right leader to help our community heal and to address the very serious societal issues we are facing,” the Harvard Corporation wrote.

“So many people have suffered tremendous damage and pain because of Hamas’s brutal terrorist attack, and the University’s initial statement should have been an immediate, direct, and unequivocal condemnation,” the statement added.

“Calls for genocide are despicable and contrary to fundamental human values. President Gay has apologized for how she handled her congressional testimony and has committed to redoubling the University’s fight against antisemitism.”
