Harvard President Claudine Gay is facing plagiarism allegations, with a CNN analysis finding examples of plagiarism in her writings from the ’90s.

While Gay plans to update her work, Harvard stated that the inadequate citations were regrettable but not research misconduct.

The allegations against Gay, who is the first black woman to serve as president of Harvard, have largely originated from conservative activists, raising questions about the school’s standards for its president. (Trending: Assault Weapons Ban Set To Take Effect, Here’s What To Know)

“Last week, Gay submitted corrections to a pair of papers she wrote as a professional academic in 2001 and 2017,” CNN’s Danny Freeman said.

“But a CNN analysis of her writings documented other examples of plagiarism from the ’90s, when Gay was studying for her PhD at Harvard.”

“Gay’s 1997 dissertation lifted one paragraph almost verbatim from another source, without citation.”

“A Harvard spokesperson told CNN in a statement Thursday the university reviewed more of her writings and Gay plans to update her 1997 work to correct these additional instances.”

“Harvard said the inadequate citations were regrettable but were not research misconduct.”

“The allegations against Gay, who is the first black woman to serve as president of Harvard, have largely originated from conservative activists.”

“But the question persists, is the school holding its president to the same standard as its students?”
