Blog Posts Accuse 2 MnSCU College Presidents of Plagiarism

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) – Two Minnesota community college presidents in the Minnesota State Colleges and Universities System are denying allegations of plagiarism made against them in the past month on a blog.

Reports say the blog posts accuse unnamed presidents of not properly crediting other writers in doctoral dissertations. The first post in early February was later confirmed to be about Annette Parker, president of South Central College in North Mankato. Dorothy Duran, president of Minnesota State College-Southeast Technical in Winona, confirmed the second post made Thursday is about her.

Parker says she gave proper attribution to sources. Duran stands behind her work and says excerpts in the blog “take it out of context.”

MnSCU said in a statement that it supports its presidents and called the allegations “reckless.”
