ACTA is an independent, non-profit organization committed to academic freedom, excellence, and accountability at America's colleges and universities.
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.
