Plagiarism in thesis at UIC College of Nursing?

Of note in the article by the Chicago Tribune on alleged plagiarism by one Angela Henderson:

The [Chicago] Tribune ran Henderson's 129-page dissertation through iThenticate, plagiarism detection software used by universities to check the originality of students' work, and asked three independent experts who study academic integrity to examine the dissertation and the allegations.

The experts said Henderson had errors in attribution that violate the UIC College of Nursing's policy on academic integrity included in the student handbook.

One commenter stated: The dissertation committee should be investigated and punished if not removed for allowing such actions to occur.

One could say the same thing about Poshard's thesis committee at SIU.
