RedState is reporting that Cornell University’s president, Martha E. Pollack, abruptly resigned on Thursday:

“The Ivy League school has been at the center of two controversies in recent times: its racist promotion of DEI at all costs and its failure to take effective action against antisemitism on its campus. Lovely stuff, isn’t it? The blowback may have simply been too much for the embattled Pollack.

“… It’s been a time of reckoning for some of these ‘elite’ universities, as UPenn’s Liz Magill stepped down in December 2023 after disastrous testimony to Congress about the rampant antisemitism on her campus, while Harvard’s president Claudine Gay was forced to resign in January for the same reason in addition to allegations of plagiarism. Somehow MIT’s president Sally Kornbluth has managed to survive in her position despite faceplanting at that same congressional hearing.”
