HARRISBURG (AP) – University of Pennsylvania President Liz Magill has resigned after her testimony at a congressional hearing last Tuesday where she was unable to say under repeated questioning that calls on campus for the genocide of Jews would violate the school’s conduct policy. Magill appeared with the presidents of Harvard University and MIT. Universities across the U.S. have been accused of failing to protect Jewish students amid rising fears of antisemitism. The three presidents were called before the committee to answer the accusations, but their answers drew a harsh response. Criticism of Magill rained down from the White House, PA Gov. Josh Shapiro, members of Congress, and university donors.
