Harvard has found more instances of “duplicative language” in President Claudine Gay’s academic work, including her 1997 Ph.D. dissertation.

This comes after an independent review found no violation of Harvard’s standards for research misconduct but identified the need for corrections in two articles.

Additionally, a complaint detailed over 40 allegations of plagiarism against Gay. (Trending: Judge Announces Historic Ruling In Jeffrey Epstein Case)

The House Education and the Workforce Committee is investigating Harvard’s handling of the allegations and the unequal application of its Honor Code.

The committee is concerned that faculty may not be held to the same standards as students.

The letter to Harvard requested documents and communications related to the plagiarism allegations and the university’s response.

The committee “has begun a review of Harvard University’s (Harvard) handling of credible allegations of plagiarism by President Claudine Gay over a period of 24 years,” Chairwoman Virginia Foxx stated.

“An allegation of plagiarism by a top school official at any university would be reason for concern, but Harvard is not just any university.”

“It styles itself as one of the top educational institutions in the country.”

“Our concern is that standards are not being applied consistently, resulting in different rules for different members of the academic community,” Foxx wrote.

“If a university is willing to look the other way and not hold faculty accountable for engaging in academically dishonest behavior, it cheapens its mission and the value of its education. Students must be evaluated fairly, under known standards – and have a right to see that faculty are, too.”

“Does Harvard hold its faculty and academic leadership to the same standards?” Foxx pressed.

Despite widespread calls for her resignation, the Harvard Corporation has backed Gay.
