Constantine fired by Columbia on June 23

Marc Santora of the NYT reported that Constantine was "fired on Monday [June 23] after months of wrangling over charges that she plagiarized the work of two former students and a former colleague."

The NYT also noted:

A letter announcing the decision, sent Monday to the faculty of the college, indicated why the punishment had escalated. “During the months since the college levied sanctions against her, Professor Constantine continued to make accusations of plagiarism, including in at least one instance to the press, against those whose works she had plagiarized,” the letter stated.
