Missouri Acts Fast

June 20, 2005 by ACTA

Bryan Le Beau, the University of Missouri dean who delivered a 2003 commencement speech that contained passages plagiarized from Cornel West and Russell Baker, has been placed on administrative leave. Le Beau will continue on in his capacity as history professor; his salary has been reduced to reflect his lightened administrative load. Lebeau's leave lasts through the end of 2005; UM administrators will use that time to investigate the allegations against him.
