University President Charged With Plagiarism (Update)
« on: October 05, 2021, 09:14:07 AM »
In at least three speeches, West Liberty University’s president lifted language from a handful of unattributed sources. Faculty members are outraged.

There is one important way to handle plagiarism.  Don't do it.  It can follow one for the rest of their career.

klg^^^it looks like this issue isn't going away anytime soon, doesn't it?  :(

If he loses a no confidence vote in the faculty senate, I don't see how he can continue.  But I would be curious as to your thoughts on this, klg.

If he gets a no confidence vote, it doesn't necessarily mean he'd resign. However, the damage would be such his effectiveness as a leader would be nil.    :no:
