Many thanks to Stacey Patton, Senior Enterprise Reporter forChronicle Vitae and the Chronicle of Higher Education, for writing a story about APSU’s unauthorized use of my intellectual property multiple times in the last several years.
After you’ve read her article, called On The Internet, Nobody Knows You’re the “Wrong” Professor, please (please!) pass it on to anyone and everyone in your social sphere – it is so important that the public (taxpayers! parents! students with debt! potential students who will incur debt!) understands how universities like APSU are [mis]using your tax dollars.
Plagiarists continue to teach – and even to head up departments – with no reprimand or discipline while adjuncts who contribute to their field with original scholarship and excellence in teaching are let go or fired for blowing the whistle on this reprehensible practice.
And administrators who either cover up the truth about intellectual property theft or tell victims they “need to just get over it” continue to ‘lead’ our state-supported institutions of higher learning in cushy, executive, six-figure positions – and even get promoted for being such great team players.
Stand up for what’s right, friends, and share this story. Please comment below, and connect with me on Facebook – let’s inform the public about this egregious instance of institutional academic dishonesty.
