The President of Harvard University resigned on Tuesday.

The prestigious US school’s student newspaper reported, after she faced criticism over allegations of plagiarism and her handling of anti-Semitism on campus.

Claudine Gay was criticized in recent months after reports surfaced alleging that she did not properly cite scholarly sources in her academic work. Her time was the shortest presidency in the University’s history.

The most recent accusations came on Tuesday, published anonymously in a conservative online outlet.

Claudine was also engulfed by scandal after she declined to say unequivocally whether calling for genocide of Jews violated Harvard’s code of conduct, during testimony to Congress alongside the heads of MIT and the University of Pennsylvania last month.

Meanwhile, more than 70 lawmakers including two Democrats called for her resignation, while a number of high-profile Harvard alumni and donors had called for her departure.
