The findings of a review of academic fraud were presented this morning to UNC-Chapel Hill Board of Trustees.
Former Governor Jim Martin led the independent review. The findings reveal problems within the UNC-Chapel Hill African and Afro-American Studies department began in 1997. They involve more than 200 courses, and hundreds of students. Martin said the fraud peaked in 2007 and did not include a disproportionate amount of student athletes.
Jim Martin: "This was not an athletic scandal. This was not an athletic scandal it was an academic scandal - which is worse."
