SIU President Poshard accused of plagiarism

Another chapter in the dreary "plagiarism at SIU" saga is unfolding as SIU President Glenn Poshard has been accused of plagiarizing parts of his 1984 doctoral dissertation.

An irony here is that the previous accused SIU administrator has been suspected of plagiarism in a speech given on Martin Luther King Day, with King at Boston University having been found to have plagiarized a previous thesis at BU in creating his own doctoral dissertation.

The AP story on Poshard stated:

The Daily Egyptian student newspaper analyzed Poshard's 111-page paper and reports that it found about 30 sections that weren't attributed to their original works or weren't put in quotations.
