Habitual Plagiarism

Update: The Chronicle now reports Columbia has fired Dr. Constantine, a tenured professor, for plagiarism.

The Chronicle reports a remarkable case of plagiarism at Columbia University: “The investigation, which was conducted by a law firm hired by the university, found that Madonna G. Constantine, a professor of psychology and education at Columbia’s Teachers College, was guilty of plagiarism in at least two dozen instances, borrowing passages from both colleagues and students without attribution.” Try telling these folks that plagiarism is a “victimless” crime. No help from Deja Vu in this case apparently.
