    Another rabble rousing university professor at work.

    There was no " outcry" until the professor started one.

    That University should be stripped of any Federal funding.

    So, actions you took decades ago that were ruled justified can be used by the mob to get you fired today.

    Another reason that no one should apply to start a career in law enforcement today.

    That’s social (in)justice for you. Just like all of this mess, it is the insane running the asylum.

    All someone needs to do is to go back into the professor's published dissertation and put it through current anti-plagiarism software.

    The number of older Ph.D's who've been discovered to have committed academic misconduct/plagiarism is statistically significant. If he/she has it triggered, a simple review can determine the amount of dishonesty and then one can petition the issuing university to have the Doctorate stripped from the offending current-professor.

    The software used to catch offending undergrads is even better at catching Ph.D's due to published dissertations.

    Next up genealogical research to reveal/terminate any employees whose ancestors owned slaves.

    iAuthenticate, DOCcop, Plagtracker, etc. can be very useful.

    Someone used one to help unmask an associate professor at Arizona State University who was selling plagiarised research as an anti-bias cirriculum that he was selling to Phoenix PD and had sold to Chicago PD.

    The then-history professor, Matthew C. Whitaker, had founded the Center for the Study of Race and Democracy at ASU and gotten involved in a sold source contract with an exigency clause to hire Whitaker as a anti-bias instructor.

    Whitaker had been caught in 2011 plagiarising material and then a second time a few years later.


    https://www.insidehighered.com/news...tate-professor-accused-plagiarism-second-time.

    Roberts, Laurie (13 July 2015). "Matthew Whitaker, dogged by second plagiarism scandal, scores $268,800 to raise cops' consciences". Arizona Republic. Retrieved 14 July 2015.

    Cano, Ricardo (14 July 2015). "ASU prof in plagiarism scandal cancels city contract". The Arizona Republic. Retrieved 14 July 2015.

    Ryman, Anne. "ASU professor accused of plagiarism to resign, will get $200,000 in salary". Arizona Republic. Retrieved 15 January 2016.


    He disbanded his initial consulting group and reformed it as Diamond Strategies, LLC.
    http://dstrategiesllc.com/

    For disclosure, I have several degrees from ASU and was not happy that for all their moralizing about academic misconduct and having it hammered into my head during Grad school during the same time of this incident; they chose to retain Whitaker as a professor for an extended time. They declined to terminate him when they should have, ostensibly due to his racial status, and they hoped he'd resign instead. Their hand was forced when he refused to leave of his own volition.

    A cheat is a cheat and he is a fraud posing as a Professor of History.

    "Raised in a family of ten children Iran (sic!), Houshmand, as a child, embraced education as a way to a better life. He earned his bachelor’s and first master’s degrees in mathematics and mathematical statistics from the University of Essex in the United Kingdom. He earned a second master’s and a doctoral degree in industrial and operations engineering from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor." - Quoted from his biography at the Rowan University website. Retrieved 09 June 2020

    Any Michigan cop with access to the UofM library want to dig in the library archives?

    I have access to a university library, being a current grad student myself. Dissertations are usually easily found. Lemme go look.

    I found 11 articles with his name on them, but no dissertation. I suppose that's not uncommon, but I've cited both theses and dissertations in the past. Earliest publication I found from him was in 1993 - and Web of Science is international. I recently cited some Australian work in my current research.
