University president Elizabeth Magill and chairman of the board of trustees Scott Buck have resigned.
Pennsylvania (New York Times)
Gaza war aftershocks are continued and recently the leadership of the University of Pennsylvania has resigned, due to pressure from donors.
According to the details, university president Elizabeth Magill and chairman of the board of trustees Scott Buck have resigned.
The move comes four days after the president of the University of Pennsylvania appeared before Congress.
In that appearance, the university’s president was repeatedly asked whether she believed disciplinary action against students who called for the genocide of the Jews was justified, with President Magill clarifying that it depended on the situation.
Harvard University President Dr. Claudine and Massachusetts Institute of Technology President Dr. Seeley also appeared before the Congressional Committee and took a similar position.
After President Miguel resigns, the pressure increases on Dr. Claudine and Dr. Seely to resign as well.
It should be noted that United States is fighting its last war in Gaza and supporting Israel to keep its rule but Russia and China seem to dominate. In this situation power circle is shifting from the West to the East.
