Liz Magill Resigns As President Of University Of Pennsylvania Following Controversial Comments At Hearing

It appears that the pressure was too much for Liz Magill, who resigned from the role of President at the University of Pennsylvania on Saturday.

Her resignation follows the Wharton Board requesting her resignation last week, following her poor performance at a house hearing related to rising antisemitism at college campuses. Magill and other college executives now famously made comments stating that the call for genocide of Jewish persons would depend upon the context of the statement before it is considered harassment.

Magill’s comments were sharply criticized on social media, leading to countless calls for her resignation. The comments also lead to Ross Stevens, a Penn Alumnus and CEO of Stone Ridge Holdings, to reportedly withdraw a $100 million donation he had made to the university.
