Penn President Liz Magill Resigns Following Criticism Over Comments on Campus Antisemitism

University of Pennsylvania President Liz Magill has resigned following intense criticism from the White House, lawmakers, and high-profile alumni over comments she made during a congressional hearing on campus antisemitism. Magill had apologized for her comments and reaffirmed her commitment to fighting antisemitism on campus, but the damage had already been done and the university was facing the threat of losing a $100 million donation. The university has yet to announce a replacement for the position, and will continue to work to combat antisemitism on campus.
