The Harvard Corporation is under pressure to address the controversy surrounding Harvard president Claudine Gay, who faced allegations of plagiarism and made controversial statements about anti-Semitism.

Board members have been urged to take a more proactive approach to address the damage to the school’s image, with some donors expressing dissatisfaction.

Despite calls for Gay’s resignation, the board has publicly supported her, but there are reports of internal discussions about her future. (Trending: Joe Biden Emailed Hunter’s Business Associates 54 Times)

Major donor Bill Ackman has suggested that the board asked Gay to resign, and she refused, leading to concerns about potential legal action.

“You need to be more out front of this,” former dean of Harvard Medical School Jeff Flier told board members.

“If people are saying the university is making mistakes — they are talking about you!”

“Asked on Saturday whether the board would publicly reaffirm its support for Dr. Gay, the Harvard spokesman said the corporation had nothing to add beyond the Dec. 12 statement in support of Dr. Gay, which preceded the latest wave of plagiarism allegations,” The Times reported.

“I have heard from a source that is reliable but a step or two removed from the situation that the @Harvard Corporation has asked President Gay to resign and she has refused,” Harvard billionaire donor Bill Ackman wrote.

“Gay has apparently said that if she is fired, she will sue. Gay has retained her own counsel.”

“I can’t 100% confirm the above is true, but if it is, I am sure the Board is concerned about what may emerge in legal discovery in the event of litigation.”

“At this point, however, what choice does the Board have? If the Board makes an inappropriate deal on severance or gives Gay a guaranteed position at Harvard, it will look like a payoff to keep her quiet.”

“I can’t see how she stays at Harvard in any capacity. President Gay’s performance and her academic record issues provide plenty of cause for termination without compensation.”

“But at every step so far, the Board has made the wrong call and dug a deeper hole for themselves and Harvard. As we all know, the best time to start making good decisions is now. The sooner Gay is gone, the sooner repairing the damage can begin.”
